Ari Chadwick-Saund

Ari Chadwick-Saund lives as a South Asian genderqueer playwright/poet/lyricist and dancer/performer in Portland, Oregon.  Recent works include monologues for Bag&Baggage Productions + LineStorm Playwright’s Sequestered Soliloquies series and Body Home Fat Dance’s performances at On the Boards in Seattle, Risk/Reward’s Festival of New Performance and the Knock Out Plus Size Fashion Show’s main stage performance series.  They were last seen onstage leading a rousing homo holiday sing-along and spouting ferocious poetry in Renée’s Queer Cabaret #4 and #7.  Audio-wise, Ari co-wrote their first original song, “Magnetism,” as part of Oregon Children’s Theatre and Kaiser Permanente’s 2021 Intergenerational Queer Audio Project.
