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’m looking forward to performing in Hadar Ahuvia’s “The Dances are for Us”, a work that examines the construction of Israeli folk dance. I’ve been steeped in rich and challenging conversations with the artists in this work considering the role of dance and cultural production in settler colonial nation building. I’m excited to perform alongside Hadar Ahuvia, Oren Barnoy, Raha Behnam, Autumn Leonard, rosza daniel lang/levitsky, Mor Mendel, and Jules Skloot.
Two things I love dearly are converging: meditation and dance. Please join me Wednesday mornings this Spring and Summer for Contemplative Dance Practice. CDP was developed at Naropa University by Barbara Dilley, a dance artist and teacher who has been practicing and studying meditation in the Shambhala tradition of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche for more than 30 years. Described by Dilley as “a meditator’s dance hall or a dancers’ meditation hall,” this practice provides opportunities to sensitize our awareness of ourselves as a system, and to observe how that system interacts with, affects, and is affected by the systems we move through. I began learning CDP in practice with Zena Bibler in 2014 and am honored to refresh my practice as a facilitator alongside Chelsea Gregory.
