Sasha Sharova has recently graduated from New York University. Within NYU, she studied at the Gallatin School for Individualized Studies, an interdisciplinary program where each student crafts their own major (also called a concentration). Her program was titled “Contemporary American Experimental Theatre and it’s Post-War Roots”. Her thesis focused on how writers like Tennessee Williams and Arthur Miller laid the groundwork for contemporary experimental theatre by writing politically and socially driven plays at the time when censorship and the McCarthy Era dictated the arts. While at NYU, Sasha had several plays workshopped and produced through Gallatin. She participated in various festivals like The “Brandspankin’ New Works Showcase”, and The “Gallatin Theatre Festival.” She recently had an original full-length play, called “The Great Russian Expedition,” workshopped at The Gallatin Theatre Lab and spent nine months interning at The Box NYC, a variety theater which focuses on creating new and experimental shows, working with avant-garde and circus performers.
She is currently a Roundtable Apprentice with The Lark. She assists the Roundtable Director with facilitating readings of plays which are in progress. They’re an amazing company and you can find more info about them on their website. http://www.larktheatre.org
