From the Desk of Sarah Seely is a company of professional dancers, actors and artists all of whom work 9-5 desk jobs assisting executives. Rehearsals and performance opportunities are scheduled and created around this. The company’s work is a blend of theater and dance, a celebration of present-day concerns and campy vintageaesthetics, topped off with the frustration of being artists in day jobs. We join the troupe as they rehearse the performance ‘How to Disappear Completely’ and take their post-apocalyptic vignettes to the street and the office. Sarah argues that a 9-5 desk job is like being a subsidized artist. Rather than identifying as an Executive Assistant or Personal Aide, the annual income, 401k and health insurance can actually make it easier to focus on what you do for artistic reasons.
