Planet b234 Indiegogo is 100% funded!

Our team is over the moon with gratitude to our community, who pushed our Indiegogo campaign to 100%. Thank you for committing to help us create nuanced, complex and challenging narratives for actors of color. We can't wait to begin shooting.

200 Hour Registered Yoga Teacher

I'm pleased to have graduated from my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training at Three Sisters Yoga. I thoroughly enjoyed the instructors and my colleagues were all very inspiring. I'm thrilled to now have the opportunity to merge my long-term love of yoga with my passion for teaching.

Open Training begins Tuesday plus 'The Lab' at Grace & St. Paul's this Saturday

It's a big week for The Ume Group! We're kicking off our Open Training Series this Tuesday at 7p with a Butoh lesson with Yokko. Participants are then invited to stay and rehearse with The Ume Group as we begin to devise materials for our newest piece. This event is open to the community and by-donation/ pay-what-you-can.

I'm also looking forward to moderating the talk-back immediately following The Ume Group's Lab @ Grace & St. Paul's Church- a forum for early stage performance experiments. We'll be hosting the following artists as they share their early explorations of these pieces:

-Ren Gyo Soh- Solo Dances (dance)

-Dara Malina- Adaptation of Minna Needs Rehearsal Space (other)

-Tom Nieboer- REINHARDT - The Unsavory Rise and Putrid Fall of An Uncommonly Filthy and Disreputable Youth (literature)

-Camilla Dely- of soft fissures and jagged spine (dance)

This event is free to the public and a reception will follow. Join us!

'The Other One' Shooting Begins

Production has officially begun for Trenchmouth Production's 'The Other One,' written and directed by Jay Leonard. I had a great time shooting last weekend- after teaching On Camera Technique at T Schreiber Studio this past winter it was great to get back in front of the camera! Filming continues through August 2017.
