Nava Sarracino is an actress and storyteller who has performed in many communities around the world.
Her most well known role in Anchorage was in “The Syringa Tree” in 2014. A one women show in which she seamlessly weaved in and out of approximately 20 characters, in what was hailed as a “tour-de-force” performance with standing ovations. Her first large role came in her home country of South Africa when she played Corrie Bratter in “Barefoot in the Park” in 2008.
Her first performance on American soil was in “The Big One” –Chronicles of the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill in 2009. Her most recent role was in a one women show “Child Behind the Eyes” in 2016 which was performed in Alaska and at the Victoria Fringe Festival. Her newest project has been a collaboration from the ground up creating a new one-women show called “Rent Asunder” which is about Tahirih, the first modern women in the East to unveil herself before a company of men and give her life for the emancipation if women. It has its world Premier in Pennsylvania in August 2018 and will hopefully tour after. As an actress and storyteller, Nava strives to give the individual a glimpse of their true nature, to draw the soul up from this material realm to the realm of the spirit, to break down barriers that divide and degrade humanity, to infuse joy and radiance in people and connect a person to the most precious treasure they possess – themselves.
