Ciaran (they/them) is a Filipino American and non-binary multi-disciplinary artist. They grew up in the Detroit metropolitan area in a biracial household. They began singing from a young age, and studied at the Rochester Conservatory of Music. They later took private lessons for classical voice with opera singer Irina Mishura. They performed for various AAPI led organizations in the Detroit area such as The Philippine-American Community Center of Michigan Charity Event and Council of Asian Pacific Americans "Splendors of the East Festival". They found a love of theater through attending camps like Cranbrook Theatre School, where they now work as a counselor teaching young artists grades 2-12 during the summer.  

They are an alum of Interlochen Arts Camp and Interlochen Arts Academy where they graduated high school. They attended the Academy for two years where they majored in Theater and played the role of Esmeralda in their production of The Hunchback of Notre Dame directed by William Church. They are a graduating senior from the Boston Conservatory at Berklee school of music with a Bachelor in Fine Arts in musical theater and specialization in devising. They recently made their New England regional theater debut in SpeakEasy Stage's production of Wild Goose Dreams by Hansol Jung.

They believe in theater for change and arts activism, as well as advocating for themselves and artists of color in a changing industry. They served as community engagement officer on the board of the BoCo Cares Equity Fights AIDS club. They recently made their directorial debut co-directing and performing in the club's Revolution Drag Show to raise money for Equity Fights AIDS. 

They have a passion for new work that amplifies and uplifts underrepresented voices, and for exploring the canon through an intersectional lens and gender-nonconforming body. Their work is rooted in their decolonizing journey to find healing for their ancestral lines and for diasporic communities. They are drawn to exploring themes exploring myth, folklore, intergenerational trauma, healing, dreams, and consciousness. They see that artists have a special power and responsibility to hold a mirror up to audiences that can illuminate truth and inspire inner evolution within our collective dream.
