Mingyeong Lee

    Set and Costume Design - Scénographie (2022)

    MinGyeong Lee is a scenographer and a writer from South Korea. She studied Korean Language and Literature, and Business at Ewha Women’s University in Korea. She came to the National Theatre School after seven years of working as an accountant at financial companies. Based on her background in various fields, she has developed her own unique perspective of interpreting text and visualizing it. After her many journeys, she finally realized that theatre was what she wanted to pursue, because she thinks that is where useless things can be used and meaningless things can become meaningful.

    While at the National Theatre School, she designed the set and props for Venus, directed by Mike Payette, mentored by James Lavoie. She also designed the set for the New Words Festival, mentored by Eo Sharp. She worked as a costume assistant under costume designer Jill Thomson for 365 Days/365 Plays, directed by Alisa Palmer.
