Episode 26: Jane Yonge
Jane is a Fiji-Chinese-Pākehā New Zealander, a theatre director, maker, dramaturg and creator, an arts politics nerd, policy and strategy writer.
Before this, Jane and I had partied together and caught up in group settings but never really one on one before. So in this convo it was great to ask Jane about her academic, arts and work background as well as some personal stuff and just generally what’s going on for her right now including being pregnant and directing Scenes from a Yellow Peril - which is a show you must go to in June/July this year if you’re in Auckland. We also talk about systemic stuff, boundaries, overworking, being afraid of the dark and more.
