About Sarah April Lamb
Movement Director I Theatre Maker I Choreographer
Sarah is a movement artist currently working across theatre, dance, performance art and circus. As a theatre maker, her work is infused with the exploration of human connection and tenderness in unlikely places. Original creations include Things I Know About You (Roundhouse, 2019), Bare Threads (Edinburgh Fringe, 2017) and To Breathe (Summerhall, 2015); and the upcoming Find me, Fool (R&D Summer, 2021).
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, Scripped Up and Dilated Theatre.
Whilst on the MFA Movement: Directing & Teaching at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, Sarah undertook a year of research exploring relationships between space, audience and performer. Her practice-based research included movement directing on a series of site-specific and location focused theatre, alongside facilitating workshops and developing elements practice for actors, and public workshops exploring the body's connections to nature in an urban environment. Her current research continues to interrogate questions of the body in space and relationships between movement and environment, exploring performers' sensitivity to space and the development of movement languages through site exploration.
