… in an outrageously funny and brutally vulnerable solo!
Sara does a Solo runs Friday, December 13 and Saturday, December 14 at 8 p.m. at Spazio Performativo (10816 – 95 St.)
Edmonton, AB — This season, Mile Zero Dance (MZD) is curious about what artists/dancers have to say as ethical witnesses to a dying planet, and the fragility of the human body acting as a catalyst for seeing hope?
Toronto-based artist Sara Porter is the next dancer to capture the interest of MZD Artistic Director Gerry Morita with Sara does a Solo. After three decades as a dancer and a writer, Porter stands at the collision of the two in her multidisciplinary work Sara does a Solo. Porter turns her writing on herself in a fearless account of what we all face – an aging body and a reflective mind – creating 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.
“Funny, irreverent, soulful… Sara Porter is magnificent. I’m awestruck!” Niegel Smith, Director, The Flea Theatre, NYC
