CONSULTATION

Sara Porter specializes in accompanying artists - working at all levels of experience - to explore new creative terrain. After decades of generating her own work across disciplines - dance, clown, improvisation, theatre, voice, music, academic and creative writing - Sara supports artists to bravely expand their palettes to both personalize and professionalize new stories and ideas. With a commitment to craft and trust in choreography, Sara brings a strong intellect, sharp eye and sense of humour to the studio. She has worked with award-winning artists in circus, opera, theatre, ballet, contemporary dance to guide creative exploration, expansion of ideas, and support the building of new modes of interdisciplinary art.
