What's on [My] Mind? is a transmedia performance project. Using multiple mediums — including monologues, music, social media, virtual worlds and blogs — Christa Forster explores how race, identity, kinship and annexation conspire to determine a person's fate. Born into a historically significant multi-racial family, Forster creates an intergenerational persona, connecting with her Afro-Hispanic-Californio ancestor, Ysidora Pico de Forster, to explore how one's individual lifespan generates larger, eternal questions of identity and legacy.

Forster grew up in California. She attended Capistrano Valley High School in Mission Viejo, graduated from Loyola Marymount University, worked at the Exploratorium in San Francisco, then migrated to Houston to earn her MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Houston. In 1996, she helped found Infernal Bridegroom Productions, an ensemble-based theater company in Houston, which premiered such works as Suzan-Lori Parks' Fucking A, Brian Jucha's We Have Some Planes, Daniel Johnston's Speeding Motorcycle and Lisa D'amour's Hidetown.
