TONGUES BELLS BATHS QUEENS


TONGUES BELLS BATHS QUEENS 
CHOREOGRAPHED BY ILONA BITO IN COLABORATION WITH SARAH GOTTLIEB
BKSD
BROOKLYN NY USA  2018

TBBQ voyages through queer imagination to unleash faces, deamons, and dynamics between the living and the dead, the sexually empowered and perverse, the released, remembered, and held-on-to. 









ALA Y MESURA


ALA Y MESURA
CO-CREATED BY SARAH GOTTLIEB AND ALBA SOTO
PHOTOS KALA MALANGALA 
GALERIA MODUS OPERANDI MADRID 2017

Power. Sex. Orgasm. Chaos. Control. Relationship. Form and Transform.
Measure and a wing is a full-length journey through the shifting landscape of female sexual empowerment. Playful, dark, emotional, and treacherous, it leaves the audience spellbound, at once broken and affirmed in their own human complexity.

Critical acclaim: http://www.paulalamamie.com/blog/2017/3/14/ala-y-mesura-feminizar-la-escena

YOLK (trio part) 




Choreographed by Sarah Gottlieb
Performed and Co-created by Amanda Maraist, Christina Martin, Catherine Miller
Photos by Rossi Mel 
Music by Chien-An Yuan
Costumes by Amy Swanson
Links Hall Chicago 2015
Links Sponsorship Residency, DCASE, Judith Dawn Memorial Foundation  
Also performed in Berkley and Palo Alto California, Elgin Fringe Festival, Puebla México



A five-year creative process based on research about eggs, the somatics of fertility, cis-womanity, and the building of a queer-feminist collective through dance.  

Yolk imagines the body as a reflection of the universe: vast, intimate, impermanent. From this lens, this dance-based performance explores the interplay of gender constructs, sexual violence, and cultural stigmas placed upon the body, as well as otherworldly aspects of fertility and creative power.
