Devin Sumarno


Devin lives a life full of contrasts and contradictions. She loves short verses and big dramas. Her voice couldn’t decide whether to be a tenor’s or a soprano’s. She’s too shy to say hello to a stranger but enjoys reciting monologues onstage.

Being half German and half Indonesian at least makes her a complete Hapa. Constantly being less than complete made her believe in diversity on the one hand and not taking herself too seriously on the other. She tries to close gaps because she sees no spaces between the letters of LGBTIQ.

Devin tells tales from the borderlines she lives at. She has a tendency to walk on the darker sides of life and literature but always tries to brighten them—with odd humor and idealistic naivety.
