TOO Episode 124- Conversation with Managing Artistic Director Sarah Clare Corporandy
In this episode, Adam and Budi speak with Detroit Public Theatre's Managing Artistic Director Sarah Clare Corporandy. An original founding member of DPT in 2015, Sarah Clare is a Michigan (Ypsilanti) native. After moving about the country to find the best places and ways to create live theater, she was called back home to Detroit (first figuratively, later literally). After training in both theater and voice at Hope College, she transitioned to the administrative end of art-making and received an MFA in arts administration from Wayne State University’s Hilberry Theatre program, cutting her professional teeth with Breathe Art Theatre Project (with DPT cofounder Courtney Burkett), Barrington Stage Co., and New York Stage and Film. Sarah Clare acted as Managing Director of Philadelphia’s Pig Iron Theatre Co. from 2008-2009 (Isabella, Pay Up!, and the Pig Iron collaboration with NYC’s Public Theatre on Suzan-Lori Parks’ 365 Days/365 Plays). For 13 years since then, she has worked as Company Manager (3 years) and Managing Director (10 years) of Chautauqua Theatre Co. in Western New York, where she was co-leader through two artistic leadership transitions and was the line producer for the Chautauqua Institution’s innovative inter-arts collaborations, The Romeo and Juliet Project, and Go West!, which presented narratives through cohesive experiences of symphonic and vocal music, live theatre, dance, visual art, and literature.At DPT, Sarah Clare initiated the commission of Noah Haidle’s Broadway-bound Birthday Candles. She was lead producer on the televised remounts of From Broadway to Obscurity (Eric Gutman) and No Child… (Nilaja Sun), in collaboration with two PBS stations, in Buffalo, NY and Detroit, MI, and with both DPT and Chautauqua Theater Co. She has acted as the lead on DPT’s move to a new building, heads up strategic planning for the company, and shares artistic leadership with Sarah, Courtney, and Dominique.  Overall, she specializes in creating opportunities for artists on projects close to their hearts and bringing them before audiences who can share in and gain something from their offerings.Mentioned in this episode:Eckhart Tolle The Power of NowCourtney BurkettSarah WinklerDominique MorriseauWe See You W.A.TTCG ConferenceSCADTo submit a question, please visit for voice recording or submit an email to podcast@theatreofothers.com Messages may be quoted by name unless the writer stipulates otherwiseMusic credit: compositions by @jack_burmeisterSupport the show
