Sanghwa Shin is a scenic designer and creative producer who works in theater based in South Korea. She graduated with a MFA in Scenic Design at Carnegie Mellon University, and completed her BFA in Interior Architecture at Rhode Island School of Design.
When she tells the story with her space, she deeply assimilates into the characters and brings them out to the real world, so that she can be sensitive to that place and design appropriately for certain people and events. This design strategy enables her to become a scenic designer whose spaces respond to both performers and the audience. While successfully collaborating with other team members who make the productions possible, her work emphasizes narrative storytelling, and she tries to achieve how every single element creates an ideal balance in the theater.
