Her personal work and movement have been a guide and a by-product of exploring her multiethnic heritage; driven by curiosity of cultural intersections, ancestry and community connections. Asha performance and solo work is based in storytelling, world-creation, character development, and puzzle-making encompassed around social justice concepts and mythology with a purpose of illuminating global power dynamics and imbalances.

Technical Staff
Claudia Errickson: is a theater practitioner with emphases in lighting and scenic work. She works as a lighting designer, lighting technician, scenic painter, and scenic designer. Her theater practice stems from a strong connect and commitment to the power of performance art and its ability to alter mindsets.

Her work in her multiple fields has molded her into a very well-rounded theater maker and collaborator. Her design and technical processes are based with a foundation of collaborative energy and creative empathy.

A large part of her design work is her ongoing love affair with visual and sculptural art. Oftentimes her design process hinges on her own artistic responses to performance works. Sometimes you need to start creatively in a medium that transcends language, like painting or sculpture, to better understand the core foundation of the work itself.
