Stephanie Jack 卢恩典 (lú ēn diăn) is a Singaporean-Chinese and Australian actor, singer, and writer based in nipaluna/Hobart. As an interdisciplinary artist creating across video, text, and music, Stephanie’s work offers playful and poetic insights into personal acts of cultural reclamation.

 

After graduating top of her B.A Drama cohort at the University of Bristol (UK), Stephanie completed an M.F.A Acting at Harvard's ART/MXAT Institute, including a semester abroad at the Moscow Art Theatre School.

 

Her stage and screen credits include Amazon Prime’s Deadloch (upcoming), New York Times Critics’ Pick musical, The Light Princess, and Archipelago Productions’ The Maids with Essie Davis and Marta Dusseldorp.

 

In 2019, Stephanie moved to Shanghai to study Mandarin and kung fu, documenting her journey via a vlog called Mixed Up. With the support of Asialink, Arts Tasmania, and a Regional Arts Fund Fellowship, she is now developing a live performance based on her time in China, Mixed Feelings.

 

In 2021, Stephanie was the Tasmanian Theatre Company’s Associate Artist, a vocalist for MONA’s Performance Ensemble, and a Regional Arts Fund Fellowship recipient. In 2022, Plimsoll Gallery (UTAS) invited Stephanie to present a video installation called 混 hùn, exploring cultural hybridity and multiracial code-switching.

 

She has been commissioned by Salamanca Arts Centre to co-write a new play under the mentorship of dramaturg Chris Mead, which will premiere in early 2023. With the support of Arts Tasmania, she is working on a debut EP for her music duo, Workplace Romance.
