Carolina Đỗ is a playwright, actor, producer, and community organizer.
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 generational healing, diasporic longings, and collective storytelling.
Co- Founding Producing Artistic Leader of The Sống Collective
