Sara Katzoff is the Co-Artistic Director of the Berkshire Fringe Festival. Her introduction to theatre came via Simon’s Rock College and a stint at the Dell’Arte International School of Physical Theater. She has toured nationally with Landis & Company, regionally with A Mixed Company, and along the Pacific coast with The Dell’Arte School. Some of her recent performance credits include My Children”¦ My Africa! (Rattler Productions) 900 Dreams (Spencertown Academy), Othello (Infamous Genius Theater Company), and Shotgun Wedding (Dell’Arte Company). In 2005, drawing inspiration from the Mad River Festival, she co-founded (with Timothy Ryan Olson and Peter Wise) the Berkshire Fringe Festival as a home for new works in the Berkshires.
Sara talks with us about the origins of the Festival, the role of serendipity in the creation of new programs, and a preview of plays to come this summer.
