Sarah Jane is the happy recipient of the Stück Labor writing bursary!
The Stück Labor programme has been supporting emerging theatre writers since 2008. Every year, the three authors selected by Stück Labor receive a placement in a Swiss theatre, acting as dramaturg for the duration of the season and writing a play which will then be produced by the host theatre.
Sarah Jane will thus be working for the POCHE theatre in Geneva as dramaturg and writer-in-residence for the 18/19 season. Her commissioned play will be put on at the POCHE during the 19/20 season.

Re-inventing the residency, January 2017
In January 2017, Sarah Jane was invited to take part in a day-long workshop at Arc artist residency (Romainmôtier, Switzerland) on the theme of hospitality.
Re-invent the residency is a platform where artists and other experts can question institutions and modes of production and research. Previous sessions centered on how art institutions are no longer adapted to the contemporary art context, and worked on a vocabulary to argument for the necessity of “slow” spaces for research and ephemeral work, within the neoliberal art market.
