Erasing the Distance Announces the Departure of Artistic Director Amy Sarno

It is with a mix of gratitude and sadness that Erasing the Distance announces Amy Sarno’s departure, as she recently stepped down from her position as Artistic Director. Sarno said she will be continuing her work with verbatim theatre and reflected on how much she enjoyed the creative opportunity Erasing the Distance provided.

Sarno’s contributions this past year and a half are greatly appreciated. They have played a critical role in the development and growth of the organization. Erasing the Distance wishes Sarno all the very best in her future endeavors.

During this transition, Associate Artistic Director Heather Bodie has agreed to strengthen her commitment to Erasing the Distance by filling the role of Interim Artistic Director. Bodie will provide artistic oversight over the next few months to maintain a stable and effective organization. We continue to be dedicated to our mission of disarming stigma, sparking dialogue, educating, and promoting healing surrounding issues of mental health through documentary theatre.

If you have any questions or concerns during this transition, please do not hesitate to reach out to Executive Director Diana Clegg at
