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.

I was honored to have been selected for the the Catwalk Art Residency in Catskill, NY. I spent two beautiful weeks unearthing the beginnings of a one-person show about family, love, and the legends we tell about "unusual" women.

 

I'm in conversations with some lovely collaborators about my queer, Latine, theatrical excavation of the character Andromache called Like to the Gods.

My second full-length play, Fire Burn Them, was a finalist for the Roundabout @ Columbia New Play Reading Series

It intensifies you."   -Leslie Ayazian, playwright
