A Glasgow-based Singaporean, Ramesh Meyyappan is a performer and theatre creator who develops performances using an eclectic mix of visual and physical theatre styles. Ramesh continually seeks to develop and extend his theatrical visual vocabulary, for example incorporating circus techniques, bouffon, puppetry and illusion within his work. He enjoys the challenge of creating strong narrative visual work.
Over the years, his solo performances and collaborations have toured nationally and internationally (over 20 countries) to much critical acclaim. He has been nominated five times for Best Actor at the Life! Theatre Awards (Singapore) being awarded the accolade twice. His latest one man show, Off Kilter, was recently developed and created in co-production with Tron Theatre (Glasgow) and Theatreworks (Singapore) and presented at Manipulate Festival 2018 in Edinburgh.
Off Kilter recently saw Ramesh nominated for the 5th time for Life! Theatre Awards – BEST ACTOR, it will be part of Made in Scotland showcase at Edinburgh Fringe Festival with Dancebase this year.
‘Meyyappan’s superb, simple, deeply emotive aesthetic is a very welcome addition to Scottish Theatre’ Sunday Herald.
Ramesh is currently teaching the module he developed – Visual Theatre Module (BA Degree for Deaf) at Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow, Scotland.
