Sara Zaltash is an artist evolving reality.
An experienced theatre, performance, Live Art, music and festival maker, Zaltash’s work is disarmingly personable, enchantingly direct and prone to radicalism. A fast talker and quick thinker, Zaltash’s style is spun from effervescence and heroism, rage and wonder, consciousness and evangelism. Out of popular movements, digital lives and ancient practices, working with live action, song, sound, community, ritual, conceptual enquiry, magic and the divine, Zaltash seeks frontiers, pioneers and revolutions.
