My Work

As a freelance performing artist, I've spent the last decade of my life learning to polish and refine my wide web of specialties to fit within the boxes of modern society. With roots firmly grounded in martial arts, classical theatre, and modern dance, I consider it my personal duty to represent my kin through the authentic reclamation of self - breathing life into every performance with deadly purpose, precision, and passion. Once recognized as one of the original scream queens of Sacramento, my art has since evolved to incorporate my love of Old Hollywood glamour in addition to the allure of the macabre.

 

I have curated these moments to engage the viewer and to transport them into a new, more visceral reality. Being called "beautiful" alone means nothing to me. Shock value alone means just as little. I would rather be remembered as haunting, inspiring, or disturbing beyond reason. I do this by having the audacity to reclaim my place in the world as a raw and real human being. It is my highest honor to represent the BIPOC community in this way. Combining my love of connection with an incomparable stage presence and superhuman mastery of self.

 

As a freelance Performing Artist, I stand naked before the eyes of God.

Causing all those in attendance to Want her... Fear her... Love her... or Be her.

As one of the original scream queens of Sacramento, this creature of the night inspired dozens of starlets to embrace their inner wild, and continues to offer horrifying performance art to those venues who are brave enough to invite her.

Working Actor

 

As a classically trained Shakespearean actor who favors the Stanislavski Method, it's always a pleasure to breathe life into an author's work. Short films, national ad campaigns, and more.

Behind the Scenes

Dua Medusa performing for Hubba Hubba Revue, as Stage Managed by Cecilia Qu'in.

There's almost nothing I love more than running the show and putting out fires behind the scenes! While I do adore my work as a performer, there's something about helping my fellow professionals that feeds my soul in ways that performing alone simply cannot satiate.

For almost a decade, I spent my free time volunteering as a Stage Tech, Stage Manager, and Events Coordinator for community theatre events and independent films across Northern California. I love every aspect of show production, and have personally worked/volunteered in each of the following categories:

  • Stage Management

  • Studio Management

  • Stage Hand/Stage Tech

  • Lighting Assistant

  • Gaffer/Boom Operator

  • Guest Services Liaison

  • Assistant Director

  • Web Design

  • Social Media Manager

  • Brand Consultant/Publicist

  • Digital Marketer

  • Content Creator

  • Writer/Content Editor

  • Box Offices/Admin

  • Customer Service

  • Events Coordinator

  • Set Construction

  • Stunt Coordinator

  • 2nd Camera Operator

  • Director of Photography

  • Video Editor

As a performing artist who spends every week dedicated to training and leveling up, I love being able to support my fellow artists and event producers. And while I'm currently recognized as the Stage Manager for Hubba Hubba Revue's monthly Main Stage shows, I'm always happy to consider new contracts as well.

 

If you happen to be a venue owner or an events producer yourself and would like to schedule a consultation, please feel free to email quindelanoche@gmail.com or click here to reach me directly.

Actor

"I was fortunate enough to share a stage with Qu’in for a production of Shakespeare’s 'As You Like It.' To see her bring the lead character Rosalind to life was truly breathtaking. Qu’in brings an aura of pure raw talent to any creative endeavor and is absolutely an amazing performer on so many levels. Having witnessed the diversity of her talent, I can truly say there is nothing she cannot do."

David K.,
musician & patron of the arts

Web Designer

"Ms. Qu’in is a huge asset to our organization and leads by example. Dedicated, organized, professional, and driven to help us in every way that her eight years in project management and content creation have given her. I look forward to continuing our work in whatever capacity she allows."
