Join us for a Q&A discussion with Theatre Director & Critic Sara Holdren.
This talk is part of Cornell Performing & Media Arts' Professional Directions Series and is free and open to the public.
Sara Holdren is the artistic director/co-founder of the theatre company Tiltyard and the theater critic for New York Magazine and Vulture.com. She served as the artistic director of the 2015 Yale Summer Cabaret, where she directed the original production of Midsummer (which she co-adapted from the play by Shakespeare) and Sarah Ruhl's adaptation of Virginia Woolf's Orlando. She is also a Drama League Fellow, a graduate of the Acting Shakespeare program at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, and the recipient of the 2016–17 George Jean Nathan Award for Dramatic Criticism.
Sara combines a lifelong love of Shakespeare and classical texts with an interest in contemporary ensemble training and devised theatre, striving for a rigorous and dynamic use of language, fused with passionate, physical storytelling, vibrant visual worlds, and a spirit of joy, collaboration, and play.
