Artistic Statement

Artistic Statement

In addition to my creative projects, I work to win social and economic justice for Black/Brown communities. Whether working as an activist or an artist, I’ve learned that no matter what the issues are, sharing experiences through stories is the most effective way to create empathy and understanding. In theatre, a unique, communal kind of intimacy is created when an audience connects with characters on stage that makes it a vibrant vehicle to challenge our perceptions and spark social change. I write plays that aspire to be both exhilarating and idea-driven, about people that dwell on the fringes of the inequitable system that binds us.
