About ME


Directing Resume



Sanhawich Meateanuwat (สัณหวิชญ์ เมธีอนุวัตร) - He/They

I am a third-year MFA directing student at Illinois State University. Originally from Thailand, I graduated from Bangkok University with the Bu Creative Scholarship and taught acting and directing at my alma mater after graduation. I worked as a resident director at Bangkok University Theatre Company, where I directed numerous plays, including August: Osage County, True West, The Humans, Fool for Love, Bent, Death and the Maiden, and Desire Under the Elms.  


During my MFA program, I directed Waiting for Lefty, Rhinoceros, a staged reading of his adaptation, Walk to the Stars. My thesis production at Illinois State University was Bertolt Brecht’s Mother Courage and Her Children. My work focuses on using my directing craft to create dynamic theatre that supports social movements, explores human relationships, and impacts the larger society, especially in the context of cultural diversity. I explore cross-cultural theatre and how to flip the narrative to make canonical Western texts less rooted in the colonial narrative to inspire a global conversation. 

In 2022, I received the National SDC Directing Fellowship Award at the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival and worked as a directing fellow at National Playwrights Conference 2022 at Eugene O’Neill Theater Center. I also was selected to present my paper in Directing Program Debut Panel for Association for Theatre in Higher Education annual conference 2022.

Right now, I am developing my craft in creating documentary and verbatim theatre.
