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.
I will perform an excerpt of disco permiso in Slovakian artist Anabela Zigova’s show Super Apple / Un Sentiment Exquisite — an experimental, ongoing series of events that aims to deconstruct the mechanics of radicalization and violent extremism within society. Zigova’s drawings in pure gold willfully use irrational, emotional, and subjective elements as a mode of political resistance. The project serves as a platform for artistic collaboration — and in this instance, we will dousing disco permiso in gold.
I’ll be performing in the Bronx in TransVisionaries — a first-ever, Bronx monthly live performance series featuring cabaret singers, poets, comics, musicians, dancers and performers who identify as Transgender and/or Gender Non-conforming. BAAD! (Bronx Academy of Arts and Dance) turns locally owned restaurants and cafes in the South Bronx into one-night arts centers to present these free public performances.
