Savage, unyielding, fierce
Sarah Ruth Joanou (she/them), pronounced Joe-AWN-oh, is a Chicago based artist, writer, actor, and freelance film crew jack-of-all-trades. Their particular interests include production design, set dressing, and wardrobe (check out their PD account at www.sarahjoanou.com)
After graduating with a BFA in Acting (and 4 years working in the Theatre Department's costume & set shops) from Trinity Western University just outside of Vancouver, BC, they wound up in the blink-and-you-miss-it town of Mishawaka, Indiana, where they couch-surfed, was briefly homeless, & learned to survive in a bar. To stave off the overwhelming existential dread that they would work in the service industry forever, they began drawing & writing.
It was on those sticky bar tops after hours, in the safe haven of the industry, that they developed her craft. They now reside in Pilsen, Chicago, where they are plotting their next move.
