Watch Mei (2022) where Mia plays the title character - Winner of the Audience Choice in the Short of the Year film competition by Indie Shorts Mag.

Along with excellent direction comes a stellar performance from our lead, Mia Foo, who manages to convey much heartbreak without a single word of dialogue spoken. Her visual communication easily envelops us into her the immense internal struggle, stress and pressure she experiences and a moving acoustic score by Nicola Chang compliments the emotional weight of the short perfectly.

CASSANDRA by Lesia Ukrainka
Omnibus Theatre Oct 2022

"The play’s best moments are when it moves from being in verse into being a living, breathing drama. These moments are primarily achieved by the very impressive Mia Foo, who gets plenty of laughs but also delivers real pain as Cassandra’s sister Polyxena..."
