Sandra Henderson

Ensemble Producer

Sandra Henderson is a settler and performance maker based on SḴŦAḴ, the unceded territories of the Straits Salish peoples, also known as Mayne Island. She began her theatre career in Tkaronto in 2005, working as a technician and stage manager, then production manager, rehearsal director, performer and eventually producer. Sandra is most interested in working at the intersection of creative/technical in making live art works. She’s spent some time on the road including touring experimental choreography in Slovenia, Croatia and Japan; outdoor surrealist dance in the UK, Ireland, Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands; theatre for young audiences across remote, rural and reserve locations in Canada, from Haida Gwaii to Rainy River; and large-scale works of theatre and dance at the Hong Kong Arts Festival, National Arts Centre in Ottawa, Montreal’s Festival TransAmériques, Vancouver 2010 Cultural Olympiad, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and on the Louisiana bayou. Sandra arrived on unceded Coast Salish territory in 2018 to take on the role of Producer for Neworld Theatre, where the LEAD Ensemble was the very first project on her roster. Now working part-time and remotely as the Ensemble Producer for Neworld, she’s heavily focused on her most important role to date – raising a member of the next generation.
