Waafrica 123

Part of the Criminal Queerness Festival.

Waafrica 123 was written by Kenyan playwright Nick Hadikwa Mwaluko.

I played the lead role of Aweeno. A young trans man living in 1990’s Kenya, deals with family, tradition, love and Aweeno’s place in the world.

TL is a New York Neo-Futurist

The New York Neo- Futurists attempt to perform 30 plays in an hour every Friday and Saturday night at 10:30pm at the Kraine Theater. All of the plays are written by the ensemble based on their own personal experiences. The ensemble are always themselves, they never play characters. They infuse movement, music, poetry, and game to create the Neo-futuristic aesthetic.
