August 16 - September 18 | Cabaret  | Cygnet Theater (San Diego)

Excited to have my debut performance with Cygnet Theater in the musical Cabaret, I will be playing Kit Kat Girl, Frenchie! 

"Cygnet is pleased to remount one of its best-selling hit musicals! Cabaret depicts the interlocking stories of a cabaret singer, an American writer and the denizens of Berlin, all caught up in the swirling maelstrom of a changing society. In the seamy, sleazy Kit Kat Klub, on the eve of Hitler’s rise to power, almost anything – including love – is possible. This dark, daring and provocative musical was winner of 8 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Composer and Lyricist. Based on “The Berlin Stories” by Christopher Isherwood. Welcome to the Cabaret! "

"Ase / Ibalik is an afro-futuristic dance film that explores the intersection of spirituality, activism and taps into the spiritual power of dance." Alyssa (Ajay) Junious

 

Director Statement

 I believe that movement can be a catalyst for collective healing and social change. My most recent films are centered around spirituality, social justice and the intersectionality of my identity as a Black and Filipina Woman. There is power in creating your own narrative and through the process of storytelling I have learned that sharing our perspectives and human experience can create empathy and compassion. May my work be an offering of inspiration and empower you to tell your story.

  "A powerful un-self-conscious and respectful declarative revolutionary piece." LA Dance Chronicle

Donate & Support!

I am an independent artist and most of my work isn't fully funded. I am passionate about creating work in my community. Oceanside is my hometown and I want to hold space for BIPOC folks to feel seen, supported and celebrated. Why? Because representation matters and it's important to have BIPOC leaders in arts and culture community organizations.  Oceanside is a diverse and multi-cultural city and I want to create programs, performances, and events that reflect the arts and culture of my community. Your donation and support will help me reach that goal. You can choose to donate a one time or monthly pledge.
