Movement Director ofTREEFXXXERS

Research at RCSSD
Sarah is currently working towards her MFA Movement: Directing & Teaching at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. Her work there has included Movement Directing with Dante or Die, movement teaching on the MA Acting (Contemporary), research into elements practice for the actor, and now with Doppelgangster on TREEFXXXERS. Her current research interrogates movement direction in site-specific and location based theatre, exploring actors’ sensitivity to space and the development of movement languages through site exploration.

Sarah’s interest in theatre movement was ignited by her experience of choreography and devised theatre. She began developing her own work whilst studying at Edinburgh University, exploring movement as a story telling device in both narrative and non-linear work. Her own work utilises improvisation and play as a method of exploring ideas and creating content that is rooted within the actors’ own experience.

She is fascinated by the expressiveness of the body and by the relationship between text and movement, which led her to movement directing and the MFA Movement: Directing and Teaching at Central School of Speech and Drama. Her love of the outdoors also inspires a deep interest in movement and the environment, and the connection between the body and its surroundings. Her original work includes Bare Threads (2017), To Breathe (2015) and A Thief on the Wind (2013) and movement direction with Dante or Die, Doppelgangster and Dilated Theatre.
