Kumala Alexandra

Alexandra Kumala (formerly credited as Alexandra Moro) is a theatre artist & filmmaker living and working in New York City. As an actor, she has performed in the Obie-winning revival of The Skin Of Our Teeth (Theatre for A New Audience), A Modest Proposal (Cherry Lane Theatre), and Houseworld (New York Magazine Critics' Pick, Time Out Critics' Pick). As a writer, she has incubated work with the Voices of America Writers Workshop, PlayGround Experiment, and Broadway Advocacy Coalition at the Signature Theatre and Primary Stages. She is also one half of the team that created and produces the popular long-form podcast on Southeast Asia titled Sugar Nutmeg, in reference to the spices native to the Nusantara region whose trade route shaped our current world.

Formally trained in classical ballet, Alexandra spent her early childhood in Indonesia performing on stages and ballrooms across Jakarta. She now incorporates her dance background and has worked on many ensemble-devised physical theatre projects. With the NYIT-nominated Ivy Theatre Company, she devised Aftermath, a physical theatre performance about trauma in women’s bodies. With the investigative theatre company The Anthropologists, she is devised No Pants In Tucson, an absurdist physical theatre play based on source text.

Alexandra is fluent in Indonesian and has played titular roles in Indonesian adaptations of La Putain respectueuse and Draupadi. She is also conversational in Mandarin Chinese, Spanish, and French, having spent her childhood in different cities.

Before moving to New York, Alexandra attended the University of Washington in Seattle where she explored multiple fields beyond the arts, including economics, journalism, engineering, and bioethics, which all gave her a well-rounded instrument to approach her creative work. After graduating from the UW with a degree in Pre-Medicine & Global Health, Alexandra went on to work in the greater Seattle Area on various projects including Supraliminal (Seattle Immersive Theatre, directed by Gregory Award nominee Paul Thomas), the feature film "Game On" (Comedy Dynamics), and the TV show "The Man In The High Castle" (Amazon).

After nearly a decade of helping other people tell their stories, Alexandra is currently in development for several projects of her own. This year, she participated in BiFAN NAFF’s Fantastic Film School and Sphere Festival’s Cinema Garage.
