A three-minute compilation of scenes from Getting to Know Your Fruit (12 May 2018), created and performed by Sara Porter. Location: Intergalactic Arts Collective Studio, Artscape Youngplace, Toronto.
Sara Porter harvests the fruits of her 30 year career in creative writing and dancing, singing, clown, costume and visual design, bringing everything on stage with her. Poetry overlaps with projections, dancing melds with monologue, exuberant costumes plays against the backdrop of intimate prose. Disco meets Baroque, language meets metaphor, and orange lycra meets the surprise of Sara's inner evangelical preacher.
