      “ART’S HEART” won OUTSTANDING SOLO SHOW at this year’s New York International Fringe Festival.

    • Surface
      My Journey as a 17-Foot Tall White Girl Navigating the Waters of Indonesia, America and Life. “Claussen is an engaging performer, and the show has many memorably touching and funny lines. It brings up several interesting themes about the racist, classist aspects of Indonesian culture established during colonial days and Claussen’s complicated relationship with that culture after growing up there with all the privileges of a wealthy white woman and also about how her background living in two countries makes her feel that she does not truly belong anywhere, in America or in Indonesia.”
