What’s On (Edmonton): Sara does a Solo – Mile Zero Dance


This season, Mile Zero Dance (MZD) is asking artists and dancers what they have to say as ethical witnesses to a dying planet, and can the fragility of the human body act as a catalyst for seeing hope?

After three decades as a dancer and a writer, Toronto-based artist Sara 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
