After three decades as a dancer and a writer – Sara Porter stands at the collision of the two in Sara does a Solo. She turns her writing on herself in a vivid interplay of fact & fiction, memoir & fantasy, confession & caricature, devising a fearless account of what we all face: an aging body and a reflective mind.

 

Porter has a penchant for humour and a sharp eye to visual design and 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.
