I am an Irish choreographer, performer and host based in London.

I am also one third of Annie Vicky Sarah- a trio of collaborators who are questioning inclusive dance practices within creative settings. As a freelance choreographer/movement director I have worked with companies, organisations and artists such as Hackney Showroom, Little Red Kettle, Complicite, Bryony Kimmings, Royal Opera House, Perth Concert Hall and The Place. I am currently working with Dan Daw and Xnthony Ltd.

This workshop is for disabled and non disabled theatre makers who would like to use movement, but don’t know where to start and for dance artist in early stage career looking to work in theatre!
Join choreographer and performer, Sarah Blanc in this half day workshop where she will get you and your ideas moving. Using Sarah’s experience working with solo artists to large ensembles to creating solo work on herself, this workshop will cover:
• – When words fail… – How movement can serve your process and create a whole other level of meaning.
• – Not good practice. BEST practice – how to warm yourself and your company up safely and protect your body in movement.
• – When I say tool, you say box. – we will provide you with a toolbox of simple tasks for you to tailor and use.
• – How you Movin’? – Start to discover your own movement language and how to pull the authentic movements out of your collaborators
