WAM January 7-8 Sara Tilley
Sara Tilley is a theatre artist, writer, actor and clown. She’s won both the Percy Janes First Novel Award and the Fresh Fish Award for Emerging Writers for her novel Skin Room. It was shortlisted for the Winterset Award and the Thomas Raddall Atlantic Fiction Prize.
Sara has won the Rhonda Payne Theatre Award and she is one of the few qualified Pochinko Clown Through Mask instructors in the world.
Sara founded her own theatre company, She Said Yes, in 2002 and celebrates the first decade of that company this year.
One of the celebrations is the presentation of a Neutral Mask workshop this year during the annual Women’s Work Festival, held in February. I spoke with Sara about the workshop this week and began by asking her what neutral mask is.
