Sarah Duclos has so many amazing talents, we don’t know where to begin! When she is not making you laugh until your sides hurt in past productions of The Vagina Monologues, or creating magic with our friends at Seven Stages Shakespeare Company she is incredibly busy with her amazing dance company,
Neoteric Dance Collaborative as both a dancer and choreographer, and with whom we are so excited to collaborate with for V-Day this year! In addition to that, you can occasionally hear her belt out a tune or two with several local musicians.

Q – How long have you been involved in theater?

“I have been dancing since I was three years old and I did my first play at Gonic Elementary School when I was 7. It was a stirring adaptation of “The Boy Who Cried Wolf.” I caught the bug and never looked back.”

Q – What are some of your favorite recent productions?

“My favorite recent production is most definitely Seven Stages Shakespeare Company’s adaptation of Romeo and Juliet, which was performed last summer at the Prescott Park Arts Festival. I had the pleasure of both choreographing and performing the show and it is one of the most artistically satisfying things I have ever done. Fabulous people, timeless material.”

Q – Have you performed in the Vagina Monologues before?

“This will be my third year in V-Day, although my first time with a NEW monologue and DANCERS from Neoteric Dance Collaborative.”

Q – What made you want to be involved in V-Day this year?

“Performing in V-DAY is a tremendously rewarding experience. It is an incredible feeling to be able to pool our collective talents as a cast and make an impact in our community while doing something that we love to do anyways!”

Q – Who is the most influential woman in your life?

“Just one? Not possible. My mother, my sister and some of my long-time dance friends who might as well be my sisters. They each move through the world in their own special way and I learn from them daily.”

Q – What or who inspires you?

“People who have the courage to follow their bliss. That is so difficult to do in the face of bills, a poor economy and “real life.” Recently, after nearly twenty years in the technology field, my sister left her job to pursue her dream of cooking. I love that. It takes serious guts to actually go after a dream and I fiercely admire people that have the tenacity to do it!”
