The Filipino-Canadian Vancouverite makes drawings that fit with her animations, which taken together form perfect environments for her musical performances. Her history, her present-day life and her optimism all help to build a universe for her work.

In this short documentary by filmmaker Mangla Bansal, you get to see K!mmortal at work in the studio and on stage.

You can see K!mmortal on March 18 and 19 at the Yukon Arts Centre in Whitehorse or from March 29 to April 2 at Presentation House Theatre in north Vancouver.

Watch Exhibitionists Sundays at 4:30pm (5 NT) on CBC.
