Sarah Finn makes multimedia performance and writes plays in Brooklyn, NY. Sarah uses found and original text, myth, media and gesture to craft highly physical and multidisciplinary performance and video that imagine beyond human revelry. Sarah’s work is inspired by ecological and spiritual notions of collective body, collaborative survival and restoration. With her work she proposes radical hope in vulnerable, wild and regenerative futures and invites each audience member to feel joyously entangled.
Her work has been seen internationally at the 2019 Prague Fringe Festival and the Ponderosa Tanzland Festival in Stolzenhagen, Germany; and at home in the U.S at the 2020 Philadelphia Fringe (FringeArts), and various venues in NYC including The Tank, The Hudson Guild Theater, Cloud City, Movement Research and Dixon Place.
