Michele is an Asian-Australian writer. She is currently working on the first development of Chaste with Platform Youth Theatre. Chaste explores the relationship between Asian Australians and Indigenous Australians, and ideas of cultural purity. She is also working as the writer on a new documentary physical theatre piece, The Colour White, with Gorkem Acaroglu as the artistic director of the project. The work is commissioned for a first-stage development by Westside Circus. In early 2013, Michele will continue her work as the writer on the second development of Moths, a documentary play about sexuality and Asian Australians, with Australia Council support. She recently presented Talon Salon, an audio theatre work, as part of Next Wave Festival 2012. Michele developed the work through the 2011 Next Wave Kickstart development program. Radio National commissioned Michele’s radio play See how the leaf people run for production, and it was broadcast in August 2012. Michele developed the work through the 2010 Ian Reed Writers-in-Residence program with Radio National. In 2013, courtesy of an Australia Council Arts Start grant, Michele will visit America to meet with and learn from Asian-American theatre-makers and playwrights. Michele went to Laos in 2009 on an Asialink residency.
