2014 Create Change Fellow
Sara Abdullah is a multi-disciplinary performance artist, and has created solo and collaborative performance pieces for the past five years. Most of her performance work has been in a collaborative capacity with community-based organizations. While at college, she worked with political performance groups to develop works that were socially and politically relevant. She is formally trained as a theater artist and playwright, but is a firm believer in The Theater of the Oppressed pedagogy that stresses the inherent creative capacity of everyone regardless of formal ‘training.’ Her latest work was a play she wrote and directed that engaged individuals who were not traditionally trained actors and dancers, with whom she worked collaboratively to produce the play.
