Everything Moves

"When we think of 'the commons,' we think of the collective commons of the air, the earth, water... but what if we consider the commons of the collective imagination?" -Amy Russell, The School of Embodied Poetics

"Sarah McCarron is a movement genius. She opened my mind and body to a whole other plane. I use tools I learned from Sarah for every role."  

 -Tessa Ferrer, actor

 

 

 

 

 

"The intuitive way that Sarah works has proven invaluable to the productions I have done. She is able to work with the actors in such a way that gets them to relate to not just their bodies and environment, but to the emotional heart that beats at the center of the the creative process. In so doing, she not only liberates the actors from the prison of "doing it right" but creates a space where truly transformative work can emerge. I have done nothing without consulting her. Nor, would I."

"I took Sarah McCarron's body/movement class over the summer. I have to admit at first I wasn't too sure what to expect and I felt a little uncomfortable about myself. When I heard body and movement, I was like 'woah I can't do this.' However, as the 6 week class went on I started to feel more comfortable with my body. It helped me as an individual. I truly learned a lot from Sarah to help me with my acting and even in life with just speaking in front of people. I didn't know how important the body was when dealing with performing arts and just speaking. I was truly honored to be a part of class!"

"I have had the pleasure of working with Sarah McCarron on movement techniques for two years now. Sarah has a special ability to make you feel safe, while also pushing you outside your comfort zone. The ingenuity and brilliance of her teaching inspires me every time I get the chance to take her class. Sarah’s work opens you up to feel and express authentic emotion while being centered in your body. She creates exercises that are tailored specifically to the scene and student, and takes the work to the next level. Sarah is always kind and generous and I am so grateful for having had the chance to work as her student."
