I WON LITERARY DEATH MATCH, AGAIN!

Two Time WINNER!

buu

I can’t believe I won again! If you don’t know Literary Death Match it is one of the most exhilarating and well known Literary performance competitions, mixing high energy literary wit and humor, and fun. It’s also international, there’s one in England, Ireland, LA, there are competitions all over the place. When I first moved to San Francisco and was a baby writer it was one of my little dreams to perform at Literary Death Match, I got to do it in 2016, and WON! They asked me back again last night and won AGAIN, which I still can’t believe cause the other writers were truly fantastic, I LOVED Faith Adiele s piece, Nancy Davis Kho was GREAT and I always always love Arisa White, her piece was so moving!

I still can’t believe I won! I got to bring another medal home to become best friend and lovers with my old medal, I spent most of the night rubbing the medals on my nipples. FUN TIMES!

Berkeley Rep Here I Come!

I Was Accepted Into The Ground Floor Residency at Berkeley Rep!!

 

 

A lot of folks have asked me when are you doing your solo show?, What is the next step for “Love in the Time of Piñatas?” after the workshop performance at Brava Theatre? And for a while I was like, what is the next step? What does this project need to get to where it needs to go? Then I got distracted by some cake, and other projects, and Netflix, but then I saw that a friend posted on Facebook that they submitted to the Berkeley Rep Ground Floor Theatre Residency. I was like, “OH RIGHT!? I apply almost every year! I’ve always wanted to do that! It’s my dream to work at Berkeley Rep! So I ran home, opened my laptop the deadline was that night and got to work on the application.

Well, GOOD NEWS, EVERYONE! I am going to be one of the 25 theatre artists working on their project at Berkeley Rep this summer during their Ground Floor Residency! I’m super grateful and could not believe the news when they told me! I’ve been a fan of Berkeley Rep since I was in high school, I can name so many plays I saw there that changed the way I see the world, and changed me as a person and as an artist. While I was studying theatre at my university I started watching Spalding Gray videos, cause I loved them, and I was excited about how freeing solo performance seemed to me, I started working on a paper on monologuists, when I saw an ad for Sarah Jone’s solo show at Berkeley Rep. I drove all the way there from my university and was blown away by her show, “Surface Transit” and was like “I want to do that, I really want to do that.”

I’m super happy that my director Evren Odcikin is going to be able to join me again for this next step in this fun ride, and I cannot wait to update you all on how it goes. I’m nervous and excited, and nervous and more nervous and have been stroking my piñatas  and eating donuts to stay calm.  I never in my life thought I’d see my name next to the names like Sarah Ruhl, and Naomi Izuka, eeeek! Read up on their projects and the rest of this talented line up here

I WAS ON THE FAILURE TO LAUNCH PODCAST!

This podcast is funny, and lovely, and I recommend it to all of you. It is called Failure to Launch  and hosted by Molly Sanchez and Mitchell Thompson. It is a podcast in which funny people discuss their favorite shows that didn’t last past one season.

I talk about GARFUNKLE AND OATES! Which I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVED and I feel should have had many seasons.

Warning, I’m pretty terrible at podcasts, I bumble and ramble a lot, but listen anyway!
