Creative Artist

Hi, I'm Sarah! I'm a creative artist and body activist. I've traveled the globe as a performer, writer, director, model, producer, and educator.

My performance work celebrates raw and visceral body-stories. I got my start in musical theatre, so I understand the benefits of throwing confetti at the audience. But I also think that if we're going to throw confetti, the audience should never look at it the same way again. I use radical kindness within my practice to demonstrate that kindness is not weakness. Joy and love can be fierce tools of resistance in a world where industries profit off of self-hatred. 

I recently moved from NYC to London, and I'm currently pursuing my MFA in Advanced Theatre Practice, and will be graduating from The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in 2021. You can see upcoming performances here!

When I'm not on a stage or behind the table, you can find me eating vegan chocolate or dying my hair a new color.

WORKSHOPS

Sarah is currently leading workshops on the subject of

Body Activism in a Theatrical Context:

The Body as a site of Resistance.

The goal is to investigate how our relationship to our own body affects the way we make and view theatre. By implementing the ethos of social and political movements (such as Fat Liberation, Radical Self Love, and Body Neutrality) in creation, training, rehearsal, and performance, can a new generation of theatre makers undo the harmful stigmas surrounding bodies that have been perpetuated in theatre performance for generations?

If you would like to participate in a free workshop, or organize for Sarah to run a workshop for your theatre group in 2021, please reach out.
