In the wake of crisis, chaos and care, pandemic and protest: who are we ?
This week's podcast features Sara Meleika telling a story about one of the turning points in her life.
This story was recorded April 2019 at the Mainline Theatre in Montreal.
*Note: Sara mentions a Charlene Nelson at McGill University, her name is actually Charmaine Nelson.
Sara Meleika is an Egyptian improviser, storyteller, and high-school teacher. She produces and performs in Colour Outside the Lines – a show created out of a desire to see greater representation appear on Montreal’s improv stages. She is the (Anglophone) Inclusion Coordinator at Montreal Improv, co-produced Ladyfest Montreal 2017 & 2018, and co-artistic directed MPROV 2019. She has performed in MPROV, Montreal Sketchfest, Ladyfest Montreal, the Ottawa Improv Festival, Toronto’s Combustion Festival, the Big City Improv Festival and OFF-JFL/Zoofest.
