About

I’m an interdisciplinary artist who makes dance, performance art, installations, and video. My work takes interest in geopolitics, social justice, queer glam, embodied risk-taking, and healing. I often draw directly from my mixed-race Southeast Asian, queer, and transgender experience. For more information, see my artist statement and check out my artist CV.

upcoming events

Curating a Sunday Service at Knockdown Center | 59-50 54th St., Queens, NY 11378
Sunday, November 4 from 7-9pm | FREE with RSVP 

Join me on November 4th for A Political Relief Party. This is the Knockdown Center’s penultimate installment of its fall Sunday Service season, a free monthly series of live work. As a curator, I’ve invited Megan C. Barton, Salomé Egas, Aviva Jaye, and Benjamin Lundberg Torres Sánchez to create a collectivity-oriented evening including performances, participatory dance, and music. As those of us with the right prepare to vote, the evening asks “who among us gets politically represented? What does voice and the body give us that legislatures cannot? Can we, tonight, form a temporary body that speaks to a collective freedom?”

Dancing at 92Y | 1395 Lexington Ave, New York, NY 10128

I’m thrilled to present my work in Eva Yaa Asantewaa’s curation Into the Mystic. This is part of 92Y Harkness Dance Center’s Fridays at Noon series. The program features artists who explore spirituality, mysticism and healing through the corporeal art of dance and I’ll be showing alongside iele paloumpis.
