Jing Wang Thomas is an award-winning artist and scenographer based in the UK, graduated from Arts, Creativity and Education at St John's College of University of Cambridge (Distinction). She received a MA in Scenography from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama of the University of London with a scholarship from Prof. Gavin Henderson (CBE) in 2012.


As a theatre practitioner and artist, her practice is informed by several important scientific thinkers, such as Niles Bohr’s philosophy-physics, Donna Haraway, Karen Barad. Her diffractive theatre Copenhagen seeks to test whether 'waves' of artistic practice and theatrical discourse resonate, interfere, and align with scientists’ understanding of philosophy.


In recent years her research focuses on XR (extended reality) performance and explores how scenography can work in two-fold realities. Her recent virtual reality project Life of Galileo (2022) was part of a digital research project at Cambridge University. Ballad of the Pipa (2021) is an intra-active VR piece exploring the relationship between the human being and digital scenography. Over the past 20 years, she has designed for many of the most prominent scenographies in China, UK and Europe, including The Diaries of John Rabe (2019) at Berlin State Opera and Vienna Ronacher Theatre, Lao Can Impression (2019) at London Southbank Centre, Memory (2019) at the Beijing Stage Design Invitation Exhibition, The Tenant (2017) at National Portrait Gallery, 170 Days in Nanking (2017) at Jiangsu Centre for Performing Arts, Hamlet (2016) at the National Centre for Performing Arts, Beijing, Normal Love (2014) at Sadler‘s Wells Theatre in London, 27 Wagons Full of Cotton (2014) at The 1st Toga Asian Theatre Director Festival in Japan. 170 Days in Nanking (2017) was nominated as a finalist of the International Opera Awards 2018 in the UK.
