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.
My video autogeography: a kind of beginning will exhibit in Hyphen American, an exhibition that challenges and unsettles the liminal space of hybrid cultural identity within the American lexicon. Through painting, sculpture, video, photography, performance, and installation, the exhibition addresses the mythification of immigrants and first-generation Americans. I’ll be visiting DC to catch the closing panel and talk on March 2. There will also be performances on February 17.
Join me on February 19 for a brand new performance. I’ll be performing a short solo and sharing the evening with Cross Move Lab, TALL GIRLS DANCING/Sara Gibbons, & Doug LeCours.
I am excited to attend and be on a panel at Dance/NYC Symposium 2018. As part of the programming committee, it’s been a great to think on and program a series of important conversations and skill shares that reflect contemporary needs in the dance community. Be sure to catch a conversation I’ll be a part of at 4:45pm in Studio M called Trans and Gender Nonconforming Artists in Dance with Ash R.T. Yergens, Imma Asher, NIC Kay, and Sean Dorsey.
Come for a studio visit and see my latest work! I’m excited to share what I’ve been working on as an artist-in-residence in LMCC’s 2017-2018 Workspace Residency program. On the evening of May 11, you can check out an installation I’ve created in my studio. On May 12, I will activate the installation with 15 minute performances at 4pm and 7pm.
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.
