Sara Koviak

Sara recently starred in the World Premiere of the two-hander YOUR NAME MEANS DREAM at the Contemporary American Theatre Festival as Stacy, the role written for her by José Rivera. Broadway World and DC Theater Arts review highlights: “Intensely psychological star vehicle … delivers a performance as Stacy that is as stunning as it is unforgettable … breathtakingly acted, flawless execution… one of the most stunning displays of chaotic virtuosity I’ve ever seen … marvelous physical acting journey… gives a master class on what a dynamic and emotionally intimate scene-partner relationship means to a play’s success.”  Sara developed the play at CATF, Sundance, New York Theatre Workshop, Rattlestick, and Goodman (opposite 2-time Tony nominee Amy Morton).

She plays ‘the girl in the music video,’ dancing in legendary Steve Conte’s solo hit “FLYING”; and is a producer and sole performer in both multi award-winning films “THE CIVET” (by Jose Rivera) and “REVERIE: A DREAM” (dance film).  Other recent projects: Signature Theatre with Theatre For One; McCarter Theatre and Paula Vogel’s Bard At The Gate; Red Bull Theater; the lead in Rivera’s LOVESONG (IMPERFECT); The Actors Studio with Chazz Palminteri; HBO’s “THE UNDOING”; and producer/lead actor in the award-winning short “THE FALL OF A SPARROW”.  At The Metropolitan Opera — where she performed as a classical dancer in multiple world premieres– she worked with directors Bart Sher, Mary Zimmerman, and Robert LePage.  She worked with Steven Schwartz as the aerial soloist in Goodspeed’s tour of PIPPIN and danced at Lincoln Center in both PETER AND THE WOLF and CINDERELLA.

She recently directed and starred in an exciting new dance film.  Sara is an accomplished choreographer for film and theatre and has been a dance educator for students from all over the world, including masterclasses/ workshops/ choreographing at Duke University, CalArts, HB Studio, NYCDA, Boston Conservatory, UNH, and Phillips Exeter Academy.  Sara will be seen in THE HOURS ARE FEMININE premiering Off-Broadway in Spring 2024.
