Sonia Lopes Soares Viga212

Sônia Lopes Soares is a Brazilian dance artist, working with dance and theater for 20 years. Cultivating a language through multidisciplinary collaboration, Soares constructs scenes using nonlinear, poetic narratives, mirroring the random and chaotic nature of the universe. This investigation encompasses vulnerability in the bodies, the line between fiction and reality, the ridiculous and tragic, and how they all interconnect. Sônia has received four prestigious grants from the city of São Paulo and the British Council to develop, produce, and perform her company’s work. Soares has performed in Brazil, Argentina, Peru, The United States, France at Pompidou, and at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. In 2017 Sonia created a new work in a four-month residency in Brazil, with a NY based dancer and two Brazilians actors.
