Sara Fakhry Ismail is a Cairo-based performance maker, visual artist, and somatics practitioner. Her work often circles around sensation, states of being, bodies and embodiments and bodily integrity in urban space. She combines various mediums at once such as performance, publication, photography, video or audio-visual installation. She incorporates meditative qualities in her work, forging links between concrete and abstract, real and imagined, personal and social. Her work is process-based, focusing on creative processes, and collaborative methodologies. She has taught somatics and performance-making since 2014 and facilitated forum theatre since 2010 in Damascus, Cairo and London. She is ½ of GAAZ Collective, a performance and publication duo, along with Hend Elbalouty.
Sara holds a BA in Theatre & Performance from the American University in Cairo and an MA in Contemporary Performance Practices from Royal Holloway University of London.
