About Sarah April Lamb
Theatre Maker I Movement Director I Choreographer
Sarah is a movement artist currently working across theatre, dance and circus. Her work is infused with the exploration of human connection and tenderness in unlikely places. Original work includes Things I Know About You (in development), Bare Threads (Edinburgh Fringe, 2017) and To Breathe (Summerhall, 2015).
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. Movement direction credits include work with Dante or Die, Doppelgangster, Dilated Theatre and Mimbre.
Research at RCSSD
Sarah is currently undertaking a year of independent research as part of the 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) and research into elements practice for the actor. 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.
