Sarah Haas is a movement artist who lives, travels, and performs in a mobile stage built from mostly reclaimed materials. With over fourteen years of choreographic and performance experience, her process has expanded to involve writing, photography, mosaic tiling, and alternative carpentry. She is the co-founder of EcoDance, a grassroots organization that researches, designs, and builds mobile live/work spaces. She is also the artistic director of Raw Art, formed October 2010 to house a collaborative art/work lifestyle. Haas began touring in her mobile stage August 2011. While utilizing her stage as a gathering site for lectures, workshops, brainstorming sessions, rehearsals, and performances, she continues to build upon and investigate the multifarious possibilities inherent in a collaborative mobile lifestyle. She has parked her trailer/stage behind Shared Space Studio, and will reside here with us through August 14th.
"Have Company is a mobile shop & residency space in Grand Rapids, MI. It serves as a one stop shop for all things DIY, specializing in vintage clothes, zines, books, & handmade goods... We believe in making, doing, showing up, and getting together.
At each of our events we open up our making space to a creative who is interested in working on a project. While the shop is open, you will have the opportunity to bring in materials, use things in the space, and draw from the environment to create. Whether it's rehatching an old project, harnessing feedback, or starting from scratch - the space is your to get to work // play // doing."
