Sara Wookey

Sara is a dance artist, public speaker and researcher based in London on a Tier 1 Visa endorsed by Arts Council England. Her current projects include reDANCE, a platform for mid-career female dance artists in the UK and Moving // Dialogues, a new residency project in Athens, Greece. She is a practice-based researcher with the Centre for Dance Research (C-DaRE) and a Tate Research Associate. Her work engages the perspective of the dance artist in the museum and approaches the museum as a site. Sara serves on the Board of Trustees at the Northern School of Contemporary Dance and on the Independent Dance Committee at Equity. She is a certified transmitter of Yvonne Rainer’s repertoire and has presented her own choreographic work at the Hammer Museum, Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, REDCAT, Perth Institute of Contemporary Art, Performance Space, Sydney, and the New Museum, NYC. Sara holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from the Department of World Arts and Cultures at the University of California, Los Angeles and has been recently published in Transmissions in Dance: Contemporary Staging Practices by L. Main (Ed.) published by Palgrave. Sara also calls American square-dancing for public and private events.
