IN DEVELOPMENT:

THE UNTITLED-FILIPINO AMERICAN PROJECT

Devised in collaboration with Nathaniel P. Claridad and Jasmin Malave.

A theatrical exploration of what it means to be Filipino-American using historical texts, research—including the study of pre- and post-colonial Philippine art forms—and weaving it into modern times via interviews with people who identify as Filipino-American.  Also, there's food.

Selected for the First Stage Residency at The Drama League, New York City, 2019.

PAST PRODUCTIONS:

THE LIGHTHOUSE, by Yukio Mishima

English-Language World Premiere

Directed by Benny Sato Ambush, English translation by Mishima scholar Laurence Kominz. Produced by Marissa Carpio.

Unspoken desire breaks the surface of a post-war family's placid life in Mishima's passionate drama from 1949.  The Lighthouse is one of Mishima’s most frequently performed one-act plays in Japan. The play is written as a shingeki, a Japanese theater form based on modern realism.

Presented in Provincetown, MA, 2019.
