"Sister" will debut in New York! by Natalie Houchins

I’m bringing my one-woman show, Sister, to Dixon Place Lounge in New York City next month! Here’s the blurb from their website:

Sister is a ghost story about a little girl trapped in time by sexual trauma. A collision of memoir, drag, and images from William Faulkner’s The Sound and the FurySister asks the audience to come face to face with the parts of themselves that have been abandoned.

Very excited for the future of this project. Sister was co-created with my dear friend Seonjae Kim and she is also directing. More updates soon!

You may all go to hell, and I will go [back] to Texas. by Natalie Houchins

After a yearlong stint in Los Angeles, I have decided to make Austin my homebase. I am SO grateful for the friends I made, lessons I learned, and support I received from the incredible folks in my life. 

Though my permanent address is Austin, I plan on following my creative urge wherever it may take me, which I suspect will be Los Angeles (and New York and Chicago and unknown destinations) from time to time. 

Looking forward to this next chapter and all that it holds. 

In gratitude and joy,

Natalie

I moved to LA! by Natalie Houchins

AAAAH! I write this post from my very cheap un-airconditioned apartment in Mid-City Los Angeles, where I just moved to (one week ago). So far I love it here. Very glad to be living in the epicenter of the film industry, and excited to explore all the cultural aspects of this amazing city. Cheers to a new chapter!
