ABOUT

Carolina Đỗ (she/her) is an actor, playwright, producer, and community organizer.

Welcome. 

As a first generation Việt born in America, the child of refugees and descendant of freedom fighters, I believe strongly in the power of weaving new and de-colonizing narratives for new world building. 

My work is grounded in storytelling as a tool in the fight for liberation and centers around transgenerational healing, diasporic longings, and collective storytelling. I am a founding Artistic Leader of The Sống Collective whose mission is to nurture a community of artists whose work explores questions of identity, race, intersectionality, immigration, and the refugee experience. 

 

As an actor, I have worked on Broadway in back-to-back shows at Second Stage, collaborated with PlayCo, Piper Theater, LoadingDock, CreativeTime.  Films and works that I have been a part of has screened at SXSW, Austin Film Festival, Outfest, AAIFF, among many others.

As a playwright, I have incubated my work with the Naked Angels' Issue Project Lab and Piper Theater. My play, My Mother's Daughter, was a 2019 Space On Ryder Farm Semifinalist and 2020 BRICLAB Finalist. I just completed a two-week residency at JACK, centered on exploring conversations with our ancestors and how to hold onto hope.

As a community organizer, my work is grounded in radical care. I organize where I am needed: anti-deportation work, community fridges, bailouts, jail support, undocumented communities, mutual aid, etc. 

Two upcoming panels at:  NYTW (April 14th) and Kyoung's Pacific Beat (April 20th)
