Gein Wong is an interdisciplinary director, curator, writer and video artist of First Nations and Asian descent.  Her works focus on obvious things like gender, class and race, as well as things a little less obvious like gender, class and race.  Her more recent works focus on Indigenizing minds and spaces. She is an inaugural member of the TAC Cultural Leaders Lab where she is a part of Revolution City, a project that seeks to centre Indigeneity in the city. Gein has also co-developed this summer’s, “Water is Our Womb”, a water retreat that centres Indigenous water teachings and outdoor artistic creations. She is a recipient of the 2014 Ken McDougall Director’s Award and 2015 CCGSD Canadian Youth Role Model Lifetime Achievement Award.  She was a 2012-13 Canadian Stage Director in Residence, a 2013 Harbourfront Centre Resident Artist, a two-time Philadelphia Asian Arts Initiative Resident Artist, the inaugural resident artist at fu-GEN Asian Canadian Theatre, and collaborated on a New York HERE Arts Centre Residency. Gein is Artistic Director of Eventual Ashes, the community arts organisaiton, Asian Arts Freedom School, a co-owner of the world’s oldest LGBT bookstore, Glad Day Bookshop. Gein creates large scale performance experiences that empower and elicit empathy.  She conceived and directed “Say Their Names, Remember”, a 500 person performance art piece which will opened the Ai Weiwei exhibit at the Art Gallery of Ontario. As well, she co-created “The Forgetful City”, a site specific interactive video installation that reopened the RC Harris Water Filtration Plant in Toronto - an art-deco castle closed to the public for a decade due to 9/11. Her interdisciplinary play “Hiding Words (for you)” premiered at Enwave Theatre, Harbourfront Centre.  She was commissioned by World Pride to commemorate the 45th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots by creating a large scale immersive performance experience to remember and relive Stonewall. Currently, she is developing a play about Ashley Callingbull, Calling Bull;  Ocean Carving a performance underwater; and the Indigenous Hip Hop dream play Dreaming 4D.
