Community & Curation
The ways in which communities engage with my work is embedded in my artistic practice. On this page, you can see a set of outreach programmes I have devised and run in recent years.
CURATOR & RESEARCHER | UNDONE THEATRE x artsdepot
Alongside the R&D for a new show, the Butterfly Project included a two-week exhibition in artsdepot's main exhibition hall, exploring the legacy of Puccini's work on Asian (mis)representation onstage.
