Charlette is a Theatre Artist born and raised in the Philippines, currently based in Chicago, Illinois. Her deepest dreams of pursuing a sustainable career in theatre come alongside her dreams to provide a landscape of opportunities, to continuously advocate for access and visibility for women of color, especially to Filipinos. To live and to leave. To live this mission, and to leave a trail for anyone who wishes to pursue the same path she is trying to conquer. To celebrate the human experience through the profound work of art that is Theatre.
In 2022, Charlette's project "Filipino Theatre Artists in America" was awarded the Weisman and exhibited at The Hokin.
Filipino Theatre Artists in America was established in 2020 as an effort to promote visibility for Filipino Theatre artists in media and to serve as a medium of expression for the unique and colorful stories they have to share.
