Fufan Zhang, Yale

Fufan Zhang is a set designer and visual artist from China.

Influenced by her family of professional Peking Opera singers, Fufan is fascinated by theater, opera, dance, and film.  During her artistic edification, Fufan has found set design to be a fluid dialog between performance and life.  Fufan has embraced this insight, which has allowed her to fuse life experiences with the materials on stage in order to share a strong emotional experience with the audience.

Fufan’s set design credits include:  Seven Guitars  (Yale Repertory Theater); The Oresteia,  A Midsummer Night’s Dream Amy and the Orphans  (Yale School of Drama);  Pheadra’s Love,  Salt Pepper Ketchup  (Yale Cabaret);  Ya Shan  (Beijing Nine Theater).

Prior to attending Yale University, Fufan received a BFA in stage, film, and television design from The Central Academy of Drama in Beijing, China.  Fufan’s other credits included Production Design for Yamakawa, a series of photographs; Art Director for The Terrorists (Best Foreign Short Film Award – Seoul International Youth Film Festival, 2012) and Show Time  (Best Film, 1st Place – 48 Hour Film Project, Beijing, China, 2014).
