Haruna Lee
Artist in Residence (2015-2017)

Haruna Lee is an award-winning Taiwanese-Japanese-American theater maker, educator, and community steward whose work is rooted in a liberation-based healing practice. Their plays are often portals into personal and collective stories navigating transcultural experiences and memories, and the conflicts that arise when dealing with the simultaneity, contradictions and pluralities of self. Through their artistic modalities and teaching, they promote arts activism and emergent strategies for the theater through ethical and process-based collaborations that challenge coloniality and legacies of power, while inviting the fullness of marginalized bodies and the complexity of that lived experience to this practice.

Since 2010, Lee has created six original works with their company harunalee, which lovingly disbanded in 2020.
