You-Shin Chen

You-Shin Chen is a USA-based Taiwanese scenic designer for live performance and film. As a theater practitioner and collaborator, she is committed to diversity and humanity. You-Shin centers humans, both the characters and the viewers, and their experiences in her process of creating a three-dimensional space. She is always curious about human behaviors within a given space. She thinks about how both tangible and intangible elements shape space and human’s perception. Her design for Eclipsed (Lewis Center for the Arts) is featured in the USA exhibition at the 2019 Prague Quadrennial. She is the recipient of the 2019 Daryl Roth Creative Spirit Award at The Lilly Awards, as well as a Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Scenic Design in 2020. Some of her favorite credits include Wolf Play (Soho Rep); Mlima’s Tale (St. Louis Rep); Troy Anthony’s The Revival: It Is Our Duty (The Shed, NYC); Walden (TheaterWorks Hartford); 7 Minutes (Waterwell); SKiNFoLK (the Bushwick Starr & National Black Theatre); UGLY & The KILL ONE Race & Wednesday (Raja Feather Kelly & the feath3r theory); Mrs. Murray’s Menagerie (ArsNova). She is currently teaching at Muhlenberg College. Member of USA829.
