In our in-depth conversation, we covered her background/influences, and many of her works. We also covered some sensitive issues—racism, immigration, and feminism—all of which are timely considering this posting is only days before the upcoming US presidential election.

Here is the trailer to her new work, History History History.

This is a clip from her solo work The Future Show.
