Im, Jung A 

Set & Costume Designer based in Stratford, Canada

Jung A Im is a set and costume designer based in Stratford, Canada. 


Jung A grew up and worked professionally in Seoul, Korea, and entered the National Theatre School of Canada in 2018.

Before coming to Canada, She graduated from Hongik University in Seoul in 2007 and majored in fashion industry communication at Yonsei University's Graduate School of Human Environmental Sciences from 2011 to 2014. From 2007 to 2018, she worked for DOOTA, a fashion specialty shopping center in Seoul, as a Chief visual merchandiser. However, her desire for theater led her to leave her stable life in 2018 and come to Canada with her family.


She has been working for Stratford Festival as an assistant designer for 2 years. As a set and costume designer, she participated in The Langham Directors' Workshop at Stratford Festival in 2023 and designed the set for Shakespeare's Nigga and the costumes for Macbeth and The Fall of the House of Atreus.

Also, she designed a set and costumes for Harabogee(할아버지) and Me at Shakespeare in Action in 2022. She worked on Indecent by Paula Vogel with director Mike Payette in December 2020 as a set and props designer, and I Got My Life Back! by Sarah Currie in April 2021 as a costume designer. 

Jung A can reinterpret the inspiration of stories from her perspective, communicate with the audience based on an original artistic sense, see the essence of the play, and understand the story with her heart and assimilate it deeply every time she meets each play.

The fully digested stories in her meet the audience in a new form of art through space and clothing, and she feels the greatest happiness throughout the process.
