Download CV


Dadiow began her career assistant directing at the National Theatre of Taiwan before moving to London to complete an MA in devised theatre at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.

Dadiow received the Genesis Future Directors Award in 2019, directing Lauren Yee’s in a word at the Young Vic Theatre and she is the Resident Assistant Director at the Donmar Warehouse for 2022.

Her work looks to expose and explore classical texts, finding voices in the texts that connect to the world we live in today. She is equally passionate about developing works and relationships with new writers, as well as reviving past plays for new audiences.

Dadiow’s recent production of MISS JULIE adapted by Amy Ng, premiered at the Storyhouse Theatre and went on a delayed UK tour in 2021.
