Kamila Sediego

Kamila Sediego (she/her/siya) is a first-generation Filipinx settler and playwright, privileged and grateful to live on the unceded territories of the Squamish, Musqueam, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations. Her work is a celebration of the richness of her culture, the dramas of family dynamics, and the complexities of the Filipinx diaspora. Her favourite thing is to weave humour and magic with the tragedies of every day. It is only with the care and support of many around her that she is expanding her skills into dramaturgy and currently developing two of her shows, Homecoming and Engkanto. Over the years, she has graciously worked closely with Urban Ink, Vancouver Asian Canadian Theatre, PTC, and incredible mentors like Corey Payette, Reneltta Arluk, Joanna Garfinkel, Hazel Venzon, Rachel Ditor, and many more. If she isn’t writing, she’s drinking bubble tea and/or convincing her baby niece to say “tita.” Find Kamila on Instagram: @kamilasediego   Photo: Noelle Sediego, @ncsed on Instagram
