Kristina Wong




In my twenty year career, I’ve created original solo theater works and ensemble plays that have toured across North America, UK, Hong Kong and Nigeria. I’ve made guerilla theater actions and community based theater projects. My essays, films, and web projects have gone viral. I am influenced by culture jammers like Banksy, Michael Moore and the Yes Men who subvert the performances of everyday life to make social commentary and change. I am also inspired by immersive theater and interactive performance art work that blur the lines between performance and real life. This journey has led me to where I am today, an elected official in Koreatown Los Angeles who is serving her term as a simultaneous work of performance art, while running the Auntie Sewing Squad, a shadow Government Aid Operative/ national sewing collective during this pandemic. My aesthetic is subversive, humorous, and endearingly inappropriate.
