Apprentice Solo Show Spotlight: Sarah Gehring

OH LOOK! Our apprentices are fancy! The solo show festival INHALE, 9 Questions is now LIVE in our online ticketing system. You can secure your spot in advance by buying your tickets online right now.

Okay, now that you’ve purchased your tickets – you have, right? If not, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?! – check out what our directing apprentice Sarah Gehring has been devising for her piece…

1. Describe your creation process? (example prompts: What were your expectations in creating? Were they fulfilled or altered? Did you keep your initial idea? What challenged, delighted, or surprised you?)

This show started out as a 3 minute poem I performed at the Portland Slam called, "Things I Learned on the Mountain". I began to physically explore it, which inspired new, improvised lines, and it's been constantly shifting since. I really have no idea yet what this show will look like in the end.

2. What is your solo show title? What can we expect/what is it about (in one or two sentences)?

A woman tries to find a life unaltered by her brain's dysfunction, searching through pages, through motion, and eventually trying to find answers on a mountain. The show is titled "The Fastest Way Down".

3. What do you hope the audience brings to your show and/or takes from your show?

Bring: what you have. Take: what you need. If even one person hears something they needed to hear, I'll be happy.

4. Why should people come see the solo shows?

Because it's fun to fall in love.
