This fall is filled with performances, talks, workshops and more.
Highlights include performances of my one-woman show in Philly and NYC, Theater of the Oppressed workshops, and the Jaipur Lit Fest. I hope to see you!
Thank you everyone who packed the house to see me perform and excerpt at Beyond Outrage at WNYC's Greene Space in July. It was a sold out show!
Couldn't make it? See the video here. (My piece at very beginning)
I'm continuing to develop my one-woman show There is a Portal, sharing stories from my life about migration, historical trauma, memory, and finding home. See a short trailer here.
