Apprentice Solo Show Spotlight: Sasha Belle Neufeld


When did that happen?! We're wrapping up tech week for INHALE, 9 Questions and, let us tell you, this show is breathtaking. The apprentices are pouring their souls out onto the stage and they are inviting you to share their joy, sorrow, love, anger, and hope. The solo show festival is a well renowned spectacular at Portland Playhouse as well as our apprentice company's final farewell to their ten month apprenticeship with the company. We guarantee if you ask anyone who has attended in previous years they will tell you this is a show that is not to be missed! If you haven't already, buy your tickets online here. We'll see you at the church.

We're nearing the end of our solo show spotlights, so check out what Sasha Belle Neufeld has to say about her work in INHALE, 9 Questions.

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?)

I started with a message that I wanted to convey. I know I have a very distinct style so I just wanted to trust that and see where it would take from a core theme.

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

I think my title is "I Share therefore I am".

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


4. Why should people come see the solo shows?

I don't know. I guess for the same reason you do anything new. If you're feeling open minded and want to support some young aspiring artists for the sake of supporting the future of the arts; that would be a good reason.
