About Me

I'm a performer and theater-maker from Hong Kong. I graduated from Princeton in 2016 with an undergraduate degree in English, Theatre and Gender Studies. 

At Princeton, I wrote and performed a play based on interviews with clowns called I.M. LOST! as my theatre thesis. I've continued to develop this show in New York and have performed new productions of it at Dixon Place and Theater for the New City. I've also created SCUM, a devised ensemble piece about Valerie Solanas and Carolyn Sapp, which I've performed at The Duplex and Dixon Place. I teach clown and acting workshops with groups including the Princeton Office of Religious Life and the Trenton Youth Leadership Development Program.

As an artist, I love excess. I love masks, and meta-theatricality, and Beckett, and games, and circus colors. I love when things actually happen on stage, instead of just reenacting pre-planned actions. I like when actors get tired and sweaty. I like strange female characters. I like people who fight to be happy.
