About Getting to know your fruit

Always on the edge of humour and absurdity, Sara Porter explores the biology, sensuality and poetry of fruit as a metaphor for the struggle toward self-knowledge. Sara stretches the bounds of memoir to harvest the fruits of her 30-year career in dance, writing, comedy, and visual design. Playing through math and memory, literature and lip sync, Sara is on a multi-disciplinary journey to examine the roots and fruits of her identity as a queer woman artist.

“I’m thinking about fruit as the sweetness of life, a slander for queer love, and the source of nutrition, poetry, and art, feeding flesh and the imagination.” - Sara Porter
