about | contact
I am a transnational Korean playwright, librettist and physical theatre artist.
My plays move through diaspora, (im)migration, transnationalism to reveal the joy and agony of the human condition. Plays include BUST (Soho Rep Writer/Director Lab); Lost Coast ( Playwrights Realm's Ink'd Festival, Nashville Rep’s Ingram New Works Festival, reading at New York Theatre Workshop); Manuka (EST/Youngblood Podcast); The Seekers (Bay Area Playwrights Festival, O’Neill NPC & Woodward International Playwriting Prize Semifinalist, Bushwick Starr Reading Series). I am currently the Writing Fellow at Playwrights Realm, Librettist Fellow at American Opera Project, Ingram Lab Playwright at Nashville Rep, a member of EST/Youngblood, and a Usual Suspect at New York Theatre Workshop. In 2020, I was awarded Artist of Exceptional Merit by Asian American Arts Alliance.

MFA Ensemble-Based Physical Theatre, Dell’Arte International.
