Meet your Dinner Host - Sara Porkalob!
Sara Porkalob is (FIRST AND FOREMOST A TEENTIX ALUM) an award winning artist-activist and creator of the DRAGON CYCLE. She’s based in Seattle but will very soon be working all over the nation. She’s featured in Seattle Magazine’s Most Influential People of 2018, City Art’s 2017 Futures List, and served as Intiman Theatre's 2017 Co-Curator.
The DRAGON CYCLE is a trilogy of plays about the three generations of her family; one play for each generation built around a central female protagonist. The first in the cycle, Dragon Lady (a two act cabaret with original music focused on her gangster/nightclub singer Grandma), is the recipient of three 2018 Gregory Awards for: Outstanding Sound/Music Design, Outstanding Actress in a Musical, and Outstanding Musical Production. The second in the cycle, Dragon Mama (a two act, one woman show with music focusing on her mother), premiered at American Repertory Theatre earlier this year and won Best Original Script and Best Solo Performance for the 2019 Elliot Norton Awards. The third in the cycle, Dragon Baby (a two act original musical focused on her), has been commissioned by American Repertory Theatre and will premier on their stage sometime in the near future.
In 2019, she is collaborating with the City of Seattle and their new Creative Strategies Initiative (CSI), a new City effort that uses arts- and culture-based approaches to build racial equity in non-arts policy areas like the environment, housing, workforce and community development.
Her new play 7th and Jackson, a historical fiction with music and immersive dining inspired by Seattle’s International District, premiered at Nordo’s Culinarium in July.
In 4 years she plans to run for Seattle City Council, have a Netflix contract, and a couple of Tony Awards under her belt. www.saraporkalob.com
