Sarah Sigal

freelance writer, director, dramaturg and Creative Director of Hush Hush Hoopla

  • Location: London
  • Freelancer: Available

I am a Chicago-born, London-based freelance writer, director, dramaturg and researcher. I have recently finished 'Writing and Collaborative Theatre-Making', which will be published in 2016 by Palgrave Macmillan. As well as working in conventional performance spaces, I also create work for unusual spaces, events and audiences. I am on a continual search for the creation of possibilities for the making of and teaching of performance. I am also interested in the ways in which writing for performance and storytelling can be understood and applied outside the world of performance and performance research.

I am the Live Performance Programmer for JW3, the Creative Director of Hush Hush Hoopla (a performance events company) and a visiting lecturer at Queen Mary and Kingston. I am a member of the BBC Writersroom.
