Actor, Arts Advocate, Livestreamer, Online Content Creator
Tasi Alabastro is an Asian Pacific Islander. He loves to create art. He especially loves helping people bridge the gap between their ideas and how to “get it done”. He’s comfortable sharing the stage, on-camera, behind the camera, and most places you can squeeze him in to.
Recipient of the Silicon Valley Emerging Artist Laureate (2018) and the Leigh Weimer’s Emerging Artist Award (2019), Tasi has also been featured in the Silicon Valley Arts & Culture Magazine, CONTENT, and is a proud alumni of the Multicultural Arts Leadership Institute (MALI). His work with Red Ladder Theatre Company involves facilitating workshops with marginalized communities; this includes incarcerated men and women in California Correction Facilities, Children on the spectrum, and homeless and runaway youth, all of which has been featured on KQED and Theatre Bay Area Magazine.
Recently, Tasi has been developing his Youtube channel by creating daily vlogs and curating content that spotlight members of the Bay Area theatre arts community. If you would like to connect with him on projects, please use the contact form below to say hello!

The idea for Digital Stories came from a place of need. A group of artists was in the beginnings of the COVID19 pandemic and eager to find a way to contribute to the community and to find a creative outlet while sheltering in place. What came of it was a fundraiser event surrounding a series of pieces that were set within the digital world - video chats, phone calls, texts - and performed on the digital medium of the story. We saw these as a hybrid of a ten-minute play and a short film and called them “Digital Stories.”
