Whoopsie doodles: I'm bad at keeping this updated

Sorry, it's been a while since I updated this site!

What's been happening: In October-December of 2018, I had the wonderful opportunity to play a lead role as Janet in the upcoming feature film Antarctica, directed by Keith Bearden! This was my very first film experience, but it was truly an amazing one. I was so excited to play a role that was written for a heavyset, Asian female where those attributes were never the butt of a joke. It was liberating to be seen as more than my body shape or skin color. I still have a day of ADR to do and possibly a couple of reshoots, but the film should be coming out later this year and I can't wait!

Upcoming: I've got a number of projects that are coming up, and I'd love to share them with you! 

On Sunday, February 18th, at 7:30PM, I'll will be performing in a reading of Loot by Joe Orton at Curio Theatre Company, directed by Shamus McCarty. Curio is located at 4740 Baltimore Avenue, Philadelphia, PA. Hope to see you there!

Later in February, I'll be lending my voice to the Philadelphia Dramatists Center's Philly DramaCast podcast as the mythic Greek spirit of mad rage and frenzy, Lyssa, in No One Returns.

Next, I will be playing Hope in An Infinite Ache at South Camden Theatre Company (Camden, NJ) in May. Rehearsals start soon! 

And this summer, I'll be taking on the challenge of Regan in King Lear with Shakespeare in Clark Park (Philadelphia), directed by Kittson O'Neill. Very much looking forward to playing such a complex and villanous character!

The Secret Life of Wonder: a prologue in G

Posted on March 31, 2015 at 11:55 PM Comments comments (0)

Greetings! Here's a bit of an update on what I've been working on lately...

My current project is The Secret Life of Wonder: a prologue in G by T.S. Hawkins. It's a brand new play, part of Mz. Fest hosted by Plays & Players. 

"The Secret Life of Wonder: a prologue in G journeys through the lives of seven girls being escorted into womanhood. Embracing multiple levels of play, the girls teach one another ways to interact with the world at large. Using poetic dialogue, these girls introduce that their similarities expand beyond their assigned genders while exploring how their differences bring them together. Positioning itself as a foreshadowing to Ntozake Shange’s work “for colored girls who have considered suicide/when the rainbow is enuf”, The Secret Life of Wonder: a prologue in G highlights the embryonic spark of when all girls gather; soothing one’s aches, sorting each one’s puzzles, and sharing one’s triumphs with her chosen collective."

It's been an amazing journey to work with my cast mates, the director, and the playwright! We run through April 5th, 2015.
