Sara does a Solo is a contemporary one-woman-show that presents an absorbing look into the internal and external life of an artist.

The work is part movement, part memoir and part stand-up comedy, conveying a bold and insightful account of mid-life. Dance entwines with spoken word, song and music, juxtaposing domestic reality with fantasy. The ethereal voice of Mary Margaret O’Hara alternates with snippets of Chopin and Sara’s interpretation of show tunes.

Sara sings, plays ukulele, and dances with a piano bench, a suitcase, a tap shoe, and a selection of surprising dresses. The performance gives us a funny and fearless account of the dichotomy of life – an aging body and a perceptive mind. It creates a story of closeness and disappointment, hilarity and ultimately, magnificence.

“I’ve finally figured out what I am: a blend of fact and fiction, a moving, howling, contemporary-stand-up-dance-comedian with no secrets. I’ve also come to realize that I am as good a candidate as any for False Memory Syndrome.” – Sara Porter

“The vignettes unfurl simply, one whimsical idea leading to the next in an unforced daisy chain of imagery, music and movement.” – Kathleen Smith, NOW Magazine
