In 2019, Sarah worked in Italy with EducoItalia teaching children English and her favourite Beatles songs via performance and play. She is currently working on her full TEFL certification, and hopes to continue using theatre as a tool for language learning. As a writer and creator, Sarah performed a 10 minute piece on her journey navigating PTSD at Fempocalypse (Nightwood Theatre’s Young Innovators), and was a winner of the Cowichan Speaks Poetry Slam for her piece As Light As a Feather. Sarah is also a beginner dramaturg and was as an assistant dramaturg for The Wait- an event for generative healing, as well as an assistant for Peer Gynt (Randolph College). Sarah is beyond grateful to have been a part of the Creator’s Unit this season. She would like to thank Ainsley, Erum, Ingrid, Tijiki, and Whitney for inspiring her and creating such a beautiful space.
In the future, Sarah would like to train in clowning and discover that world of playfulness, and focus on Theatre for Young Audiences/Theatre in Education.
