Sara Moore in "The Supers"

  

Sara Moore gives people the gift of laughter through the art of clowning. And clowning has been self-empowering for them when it comes to gender. Sara’s character is out of this world in "The Supers: A Science-Fiction Magical Realism Human Cartoon Opera."

See The Supers Feb 19-29 at Z Space in San Francisco. Sara Moore is also the director of the Clown Conservatory. Read her compelling essay "The State of the Clown" about clowning, gender and embracing imperfections.
