With the NYBDC, she has performed at the Drottningholm Theater, the International Händelfestspiele Göttingen, Danspace at St. Mark’s Theater, the Guggenheim Museum, and the Potsdam Sanssouci Music Festival. While living in NYC, she also presented her choreography, including the full-length show Courtesan, and curated the genre-mixing experimental programs Modern Burlesque and Avant/Après le Déluge. Since moving to Cologne, Germany in 2006, she has been an active freelance performer and toured Italy and Belgium with Deda Christina Colonna’s The Fairy Queen. In Cologne, she has co-founded the “postmodern baroque” group The Punks Delight with the musician Beate Alsdorf. The group has produced several performances, and they were invited to perform at the Kölner Musiknacht 2010. The Punks Delight is currently in the planning phase for Psiché; or, Come Back Amor. Sarah Edgar continues to perform with The New York Baroque Dance Company and regularly works as Ms. Turocy’s assistant, most recently as the directing assistant for the opera Teseo at the 2011 Internationale Händelfestspiele Göttingen. She has taught many master classes in baroque dance, including classes at New York University and Cornell University, as well as in Germany at the TANZhautnah Festival, Schwetzinger Tanztage, and the Musikhochschule für Musik und Tanz Köln. She has also given scholarly papers on eighteenth century dance at the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies, the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, and the Utrecht Early Music Festival. In 2010, she began studying for her MA in Tanzwissenschaft (dance studies) at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz Köln. This past February she was the choreographer for the production of Dido and Aeneas with the Haymarket Opera in Chicago.
