Sophia is a nomadic creator, performer, writer, healer, and lobsterbird. Using multimedia at the intersections of art/science, performing/visual arts, and nature/technology/spirituality, Sophia’s work celebrates the universal interconnectedness of the everyday.
Sophia is trained in a multitude of somatic, academic, and creative disciplines including Butoh, Noguchi Taiso, Viewpoints, Suzuki Method, Feldenkrais, Alexander Technique, Reiki, robotics, computer programming, photography, psychology (BA, Rutgers), and Performance and Interactive Media Arts (MFA, Brooklyn College). This interdisciplinary cross-pollination works to develop sensory perception, uniting imaginations in a shared mind-body field. The art takes many forms and is always site-specific, both a response to and a reflection of the environment for which it is made. It creates space for audience to enter into experience, infusing abstract ideas and images with meaning, making connections between daily life and greater spiritual relevance. In these spaces, one can experience a sense of safety and challenge within expanding boundaries, encouraging growth and healing for this world.
