Featured in festivals from New England to New Zealand, Sara is the daughter and granddaughter of performing storytellers.  Sara has traveled worldwide in learning her craft.  Her "excellent sense of pace and dramatic tension" (NEA) won her a National Endowment for the Arts Solo Performance Fellowship in 1991.  Her international experience exhibits itself in her eclectic performances.  With a hint of the brogue in her masterful portrayal of Celtic mystery, she draws her audience into ancient Irish legends, while her powerful portrayals of Kali, Shiva and the Ramayana gain an authentic feel from her years in India.

Using voice and posture, Sara has mastered the "quicksilver transformations" (NEA) that can mesmerize an audience.  Involving the audience as she performs, she is indeed "a compelling presence, representing the art of storytelling at its best." (Sidney Brien, Boston Institute of the Arts)

With a lifetime of professional experience, Sara has developed a vast repertoire.  Besides presenting concert-length solo shows for adults, she has taught 2-3 week workshops to retirees.  She taught music/drama in schools for eight years and has been on various school-based artist-in-residence programs across the nation beginning in  1980.

Performances, workshops, residencies, and festivals--she will tailor her repertoire to your theme.
