About the Director


Ian Loy is a theatre-maker based in Singapore since 1999. He graduated from Lasalle-SIA College of the Arts in 2002 with a Diploma in Drama with Distinction and was also a recipient of the NAC Georgette Chen Arts Scholarship. Since then he has used his forte in theatre arts as a performer and director in school projects and theatre, both independently and with established theatre companies.

Ian Loy founded MySuperFuture Theatrical Productions in 2009. Through the company, he involves himself with many community outreach and theatre projects with people of all ages and abilities, coaching or creating theatre art for them, especially for the young audiences. With this passion, Ian Loy was also invited to be an Associate Artist with the Esplanade from 2018 to 2020. He has been creating theatre for our young audiences since 2009.

He was awarded the Singapore Young Artist Award in 2014 for his series of accomplished work in theatre for young audiences (TYA). It represents Singapore’s highest award for young arts practitioners, aged 35 years and below in the year of award, whose artistic achievements and commitment have distinguished them among their peers. It encourages him to continue pursuing excellence in the arts, and to look towards inspiring others.

In 2016, Ian was nominated Best Director by LIFE! Theatre Awards for his work in Grandpa Cherry Blossoms presented by Esplanade’s SUPER JAPAN Festival. This nomination in itself is unique as he was the only TYA director that is mentioned in its category ever. This serves as an affirmation for him to continue serving brilliant work in the theatres for the young.
