Tarun Satyakumar wears many colourful hats – consultant by day, actor/writer by night. His love for theatre and story-telling began as a child eagerly watching and imitating masters such as Al Pacino and Robert De Niro. He found a passion for stage performance and character portrayal throughout his time at school and university, and decided to embark on his journey as a creative double-lifer! His skills and repertoire have since been honed and supplemented by pursuing various classes at HCAC.
Tarun has been actively involved in the Singapore Theatre community since 2014. His past work includes directing a version of Robert Yeo’s “Are you there Singapore?” and playing a lead role in a production of Chong Tse Chien’s “Charged” under the guidance of Margaret Chan, the latter being a collaboration between 3 institutions (SMU, IT, and Republic Polytechnic).
Looking ahead, Tarun hopes to bring his work to wider audiences and contribute to the local arts community by telling powerful, impactful stories on- and off-stage and screen.
