Sarah Rose Graber

Sarah Rose Graber is a performer, director, and teaching artist living between Chicago and the UK. Recently named "One of 15 Women to Watch in 2015" by Today's Chicago Woman Magazine, she finished a Fulbright Fellowship in the UK exploring devised theatre. She attended Northwestern University where she earned a Theatre degree and completed her thesis in Performance Studies. She received her acting certificate from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London which piqued her interest in the international theatre scene. This led to Graber winning the Circumnavigator Scholar Grant in which she traveled around the world to England, South Africa, Kenya, Mauritius, Western Australia, New South Wales, New Zealand, and Argentina to study theatre for social change. 

In the UK, Graber has worked with the National Theatre of Scotland, Playwrights' Studio Scotland, punchdrunk, Fuel, the National, Requardt & Rosenberg, the LIFT festival, and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. She is also a horse performer and was part of the creative team for a new production with Klinten Kultur and the Equus Project in Sweden called Nattdans pa Hovdala that brought together horseback riding, dance, fire, drumming, and autistic performers.

In the US, Graber has worked with Northlight Theatre, Victory Gardens, Strawdog, 2nd Story, Metropolis Performing Arts Centre, Pavement Group, Actors Gymnasium, Collaboraction, Noble Horse, and CIC Theater. In addition to her work with Forks and Hope, she is a proud ensemble member performing, directing, and devising new work with Adventure Stage Chicago, making theatre for young audiences; and is the Co-Founder of Knife & Fork, a company that makes feminist driven work about people’s relationships to food and the body.  www.SarahRoseGraber.com
