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.

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.
