About the Artist



Community specific Original Works

Sabrina Peck creates original theater works infused with movement and music. She often travels to communities here and abroad, gathering stories, researching local history, and interviewing people of all ages and backgrounds. She distills this rich material—in collaboration with community members and professional theater artists—into productions that include the community both on stage and in the audience. Collaborators have included communities as diverse as Bosnian Muslim refugees in Croatia, commodities traders in New York City, and former tobacco workers in Durham, NC

"Some community-based art is less interesting aesthetically. They are marvelous as far as getting to hear from people you don't usually hear from—a tremendous energy is released. Sabrina, however, has the training and the vision of an individual artist... Aesthetically, quite frankly—and this is really more Sabrina than anyone else—it's one of the most interesting community-based plays that I've ever seen."
—Jan Cohen Cruz, author of
Local Acts: Community-Based performance in the U.S., writing about common green/common ground in The Drama Review
