MIXTAPE Creator, Head Director Sara Judge is a San Francisco based Songwriter and Theater Artist. Combining two art forms that rarely have an opportunity to collaborate, she has been a leader in supporting and directing new work in Philadelphia and San Francisco for the past 15 years. In addition to producing three original runs of MIXTAPE at PianoFight, Sara recently directed a full-length reading for the SF Olympians Festival and a short opera for the SF 48 Hour Opera Festival. Her original music has been described as capturing the energy of dub hall reggae and hip-hop, but with the more intimate exchange of acoustic guitar and strings. "Really terrific! And what a voice. Of all the ladies who can belt it out--Florence + the Machine, Natalie Merchant, Neko Case and Brandi Carlile--Judge's work keeps right up with them." - Kara Swisher, Co-Producer, and Co-Host of The Wall Street Journal's, D: All Things Digital. www.sarajudge.com
