Stephanie Pan is a voice artist, composer, interdisciplinary maker, performer and curator currently based in The Hague, the Netherlands. At the root of her work is the notion of pure communication; finding a form of contact with the audience which is stripped of social expectations and distractions, that speaks beyond the conventional and social limitations and constructs of language. A mutating combination of theater/performance art/experimental music/improvisation/controlled chaos/pop music/classical music, her work is visceral, passionate and intense, and often explores the limits of the body and voice.

She has performed throughout the US and Europe, and has presented both solo and collaborative work in venues and festivals as varied as CTM Berlin, Sziget Festival, Rewire Festival, Young Vic Theatre London, La MaMa Theater NYC, BBC, IDFA, Dutch National Opera, Beursschouwburg Brussel, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, and Kunstmuseum Den Haag. She has collaborated regularly with Belarus Free Theatre, filmmaker Jeanette Groenendaal, Ensemble Klang and Rosa Ensemble, among others. Together with her duo partner Stelios Manousakis, she has co-founded groups such as Computer Aided Breathing, a trio for voice, organ and live electronics devoted to live improvisation, and Center no Distractor, a duo for taiko and live electronics. Additionally, they co-founded and co-curate the inter-media platform Modern Body Festival in The Hague.

Ms. Pan received her Masters in Theatre from DasArts: Advanced Studies in the Performing Arts (AHK), and holds a BA from UC Berkeley in Music and Applied Mathematics, and a First Phase Diploma, with distinction, in Classical Singing from The Royal Conservatory, The Hague.
