On October 31st and November 1st 2014, I am involved in mounting a revival of Luis H. Francia's collection of poems envisioned for the stage called "The Beauty of Ghosts". It will be staged in Topaz Arts in Queens, NY and presented in celebration of Filipino American History/ Heritage Month and the Filipino Holiday Undas (aka the Day of the Dead or All Souls /Saint Day).

On Tues. 3/4/14, I mounted "Speech, Chant, Manifesto: The Words of the Asian American Movement" as part of the "Serve the People: The Asian American Movement in New York" exhibit at the Interference Archive, Gowanus Brooklyn. More info below:
An ensemble of actors and organizers will stage a theatrical reading of writings and interviews of the 1970s Asian American Movement. Luminaries like Richard Aoki and Chris Iijima articulated the political and social ideas of the Movement. These theatrical readings aim not only to shine light on those words, but to produce a conversation between contemporary organizing and its political roots.
