Cha the Wordsmith
I write in resonances and in communion. I write with love and humor and violence and intimacy.
I write from listening deeply to history and experience. I write to dance and sing and pray and play.
My newest play is Like to the Gods, a queer, Latine excavation of the character Andromache from Homer's Iliad and Sappho's poetry, told in episodes and odes, movement and monologue, English and Spanish (and a hint of Greek!)
I am so honored to have been selected as a finalist for the Roundabout @ Columbia New Play Reading Series with my play Fire Burn Them

It intensifies you." -Leslie Ayazian, playwright
