Here is a collection of talks, podcast and audio experiences I have created, co created or convened.
POWER / PLAY
Part of Rosabel Tan’s Constellations Series for the Auckland Writer’s Festival 2022.
Three writers crafting work for stage and screen discuss writing themselves into their projects for an audience beyond their own community (or in some cases, refusing that entirely), and the mistakes, compromises and wins along the way. They share their secret tactics for creativity, collaboration and care in the writers room, and reflect on the big conversations our next generation is having. Join writer, director and producer Nahyeon Lee, whose new play The First Prime-Time Asian Sitcom premieres at Silo Theatre this year; comedian and creator of Raised by Refugees Pax Assadi; and novelist and Aroha Bridge writer Coco Solid (aka Jessica Hansell) in conversation with Nisha Madhan.
