About me:

Michi Zaya (any pronoun) is a Mongolian theatre director, actor, and creative technologist based in NYC. Michi’s focus is on innovative and experimental storytelling, while telling vulnerable and hopeful stories. Michi works with queer women, trans/non-binary folx and immigrant/international communities- all being very important to their identity. She curated and directed the award winning capstone for the 2022 MA AME program at The New School College of Performing Arts, THE BOY WHO BURNT HIS VILLAGE DOWN. Michi enjoys working with striking and spooky visuals that elevate the stakes of stories that deserve attention, awareness, and care. The New School for Drama’s recipient of the 2021 Judith Malina Award for innovation and advancement of craft, Michi hopes to keep exploring, telling spooky stories, and building spaces for people to see themselves in their art.
