Sahar Mitchell Strange is very proud to be a part of Many Mouths, One Stomach. MMOS represents a melding of two of Sahar’s favorite endeavors: performance and community spectacle. As a member of the troupe Strange Family Circus, Sahar has been professionally obnoxious via circus, sideshow, fire and dance since 2002 and earned the distinction ‘first African American woman to have a speaking role in an American sideshow’ while working in New York in 2003. Sahar is a founding member of Production Agency for Participatory Arts who has successfully produced the Phoenix Annual Parade of the Arts for the past 6 years.
Sahar has won several accolades from the New Times “Best of Phoenix,” and has performed throughout the United States with the Coney Island Circus Sideshow, Hell City Tattoo Convention, The Fiesta Bowl Block Party, and Tour de Fat. As an opening act, Sahar has appeared with rock bands Calexico and Garbage and made a special appearance for the screening of “The Devil’s Carnival” directed by Darren Lynn Bousman (of the “Saw” movies).
Publications as the Arizona Republic, Java Magazine, 944 Magazine, Desert Living Magazine, The Los Angeles Times and the Brooklyn Bay News help document Sahar’s whereabouts through nice pictures an odd misquotes. Sahar can be seen performing in art galleries, festivals, concerts, sideshows, variety shows, and corporate events. She regularly holds down an unimpressive day job and is mom to two very impressive young daughters.
