Yasemin Kay Allen

I’M A THIRD-CULTURE KID. AN ADULT NOW, I GUESS. MY PARENTS ARE BRITISH AND I GREW UP BETWEEN ISTANBUL, LONDON, AND GOLD COAST. I’VE BEEN ACTING SINCE I WAS 18 YEARS OLD. MY MOTHER IS AN ACTRESS AS WELL AND I GREW UP ON FILM AND TV SETS. I’M A SHY CHARACTER AND FIND THE LIMELIGHT A LITTLE TOO BRIGHT UNLESS I’M ENVELOPED BEHIND A CHARACTER, A STORY. MY BODY IS A VESSEL FOR MY ART, FOR THE ARCHETYPES AND STORIES THAT NEED A VOICE.

ALL THE REST, EVERYTHING I DO AS A HOBBY, IS TO FORGE A SENSE OF WHOLENESS, OF CONSTANT, IN A LIFE THAT’S ALWAYS IN FLUX AND ALWAYS CHANGING. I BELIEVE IN A PLACE BEYOND WORDS AND LANGUAGE, AND I BELIEVE THAT IS LOVE. I BELIEVE LOVE AND ART ARE WHAT MAKE HUMAN BEINGS MAGNIFICENT. I BELIEVE IN BEING GOOD FOR THE SAKE OF BEING GOOD, TALKING LESS, AND DOING MORE. I BELIEVE VULNERABILITY IS MAGNIFICENT.

IN ART, WE FIND THE PIECES OF OURSELVES THAT HURT TOO MUCH TO SPEAK, WE MAGNIFY AND INSPECT AND BREAK APART HUMANITY’S DRIVES IN THE WORLD OF STORYTELLING, PLAY-ACTING OUR COMMUNAL AND PERSONAL TRAUMAS, AND WE COME TOGETHER. I SUPPOSE I’M AN EXHIBITIONIST, EMOTIONALLY AND PHYSICALLY. I LIVE MY LIFE AS AN EXAMPLE OF ITS OWN KIND, I FIND MY CUES, I FIND MY PEOPLE, AND PROTECT THEM FIERCELY. EVERY YEAR I COME BACK TO THE SEA, WHEREVER I AM IN THE WORLD, AND DIP MY FEET IN, AND CHECK IN WITH MYSELF.

HERE I AM THIS YEAR, THERE I WILL BE THE NEXT, MY RESTLESS SPIRIT WHISPERING MY PLANS TO ME, THOUGH NOT TOO LOUD IN CASE THEY GET SWEPT AWAY IN THE WIND. —
