2017 Residency Artists
13th Floor - Jenny McAllister & Zach Fischer
13th Floor creates thoughtful, darkly comic theater that won’t hold still. Their work explores the unlikely spaces where humor intersects with horror, the magical overlaps with the everyday, and movement of all kinds wraps itself around the spoken word. With original and unexpected storylines, they bring audiences on a wild ride through thought-provoking subject matter dipped in a mixture of quirky, off-beat humor and hope. They want audiences to leave the theater thinking, conversing, and somehow changed by what they just saw.
Sarah Cecilia is a classically trained, creatively inclined dancer and movement artist. Born in Barranquilla, Colombia and raised in the United States and Argentina, she began her ballet training at the age of three. Sarah has performed with Oregon Ballet Theatre, San Francisco Opera, Oakland Ballet, and Dance Theatre of Harlem, among others. She is currently a senior dancer and collaborator with Amy Seiwert’s Imagery, and was nominated for Isadora Duncan Dance Awards as an individual performer in 2012 and 2016 for her work with Imagery. Sarah enjoys collaborating with artists, filmmakers, photographers, musicians, and technological engineers to break new ground in dance through interdisciplinary communication.
