Brutally honest, Hilariously funny!!

Neil Hainsworth

It Started With Jason Donovan

Sarah Blanc recounts her past dating life through the songs of her first love – Jason Donovan. Presented in a lecture-style format, alongside a cardboard cut-out Jason, she offers important life lessons for those with too many broken hearts, through dance, theatre, comedy and a whole lot of lycra. Nothing can divide us with Sarah to guide us.

The piece was first created and presented as a 24 minute show for The Place’s emerging choreographer’s platform Resolution! in February 2014. The show has since been developed into a full length show with the support of The Place, IdeasTap innovators Crowdfunding and Candoco Dance Company and creative support from mentors Bryony Kimmings and Aletta Collins.
