Playwright, director and novelist. Born in 1988. Studied theater at J.F. Oberlin University.
She writes and directs plays that deal with human behavior, the physiology of the body, and the unease surrounding these themes, using her unique sense of language and physical sensitivity. In one of her works, themes such as sex, cross mating and breeding are clinically portrayed through the viewpoint of women; the audience is showered with physically stimulating, verbal rampages and the actors execute their lines using their entire bodies—at times in the manner of caricature, at times in the manner of confession. Here, the patriarchal, anthropocentric narrative of sexuality and reproductive behavior is invalidated, and even the ethics and morals of the social majority are radically called into question.

The Saison Foundation fellow.
