"Not Everyone can be famous. But everybody can be great, because greatness is determined by service" - Martin Luther King
My name is Alyssa Junious and I am a San Diego based arts and wellness advocate. As a social conscious artist, I am dedicated to creating work that inspires change and initiates conversation.

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
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.
