Sara does a Solo (2016)
Choreography: Sara Porter
After two decades as a dancer and a writer, Sara Porter stands at the collision of the two in her multi-disciplinary work Sara does a Solo. Turning her writing on herself in a fearless account of what we all face – an aging body and a reflective mind – Porter creates a world where intimacy and pathos, hilarity and beauty co-exist in the physical stories she tells about life as an artist and a parent. Part memoir, part stand-up comedy, part dance performance, Sara does a Solo is unlike anything else. A bold and beautiful account of mid-life.
