The Mother Tongue Project brings generations together through language, song and martial arts. Through recorded interviews, first-generation artists connect with their parents in a surprising and thoughtful journey through their family histories. How will cultural inheritance evolve in the hands of the next generation? In 2016/2017 I created/directed The Mother Tongue Project, produced by Then They Fight Theatre, which enjoyed a sold-out run at the Black Cat Artspace.

In 2015/16 I was a member of the inaugural FACTORY FOREMEN Emerging Directors Unit at Factory Theatre. Masterclasses were taught by Nina Lee Aquino, Ric Knowles, Camellia Koo and Soheil Parsa. As part of the program I assisted Peter Hinton on Bombay Black (Dora Nominations for Best Direction, Best Lighting Design, Outstanding Performance -Female). As our final project, I workshopped and directed Yolanda Bonnell's Scanner for FACTORY WIRED, Factory's annual festival of new work.
