I am a transnational Korean playwright / physical theater artist, currently based in New York. My work expresses the joys and agonies of the human condition through the breathing, moving body. I am currently the Playwriting Fellow at New York Theatre Workshop, Ingram New Works Playwright at Nashville Rep, Resident at Soho Rep Writer/Director Lab, and a member of EST/Youngblood.
My work has been developed and presented at the New York Theatre Workshop, Soho Rep, Bay Area Playwrights Festival, Nashville Rep, Ensemble Studio Theatre, Bushwick Starr, Fresh Ground Pepper, Dell'Arte International and Minnesota Fringe Festival. Recently, I was awarded Artist of Exceptional Merit by Asian American Arts Alliance. I developed work as Works-In-Progress Artist at Red Eye Theater and a Resident at Pangea World Theatre’s National Institute for Directing & Ensemble Creation. From 2014 to 2017, I created 11 new, original works at Dell’Arte International through an ensemble-based devising process.
My theater collective Creative Traffic Flow’s work has been presented and supported by Performance Project at the University Settlement, LMCC/New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, Women Center Stage Festival (Culture Project), Clean Valley Council, and Works On Water’s Governors Island Artist Residency.
