Sara Does A Solo
Sara does a Solo
By Sara Porter, San Francisco International Arts Festival 2016
Sara Porter is a Toronto-based choreographer, writer, performer and teacher. As a member of the movement-based group, the Intergalactic Arts Collective, she works out of a studio in the cultural hub of Artscape Youngplace in downtown Toronto. Sara is an Associate Artist at pounds per square inch performance where she collaborates with Artistic Director Gerry Trentham to explore new modes of performance in a trans-disciplinary aesthetic.
After 25 years writing on the works and lives of other artists, Porter turns her pen on herself to present a collision of dance, storytelling, poetry, stand-up, singing and visual design in an inter-play of fact and fiction, memoir and fantasy, confession and caricature.
Sara does a Solo is a fearless account of aging and the reflective mind.
