Actor, dancer, choreographer Sophia Rodriguez (°1984) studied circus, dance and theatre in Venezuela (Universidad Experimental de las Artes), in Cuba (Cuban National Circus School) and in Switzerland (Accademia Teatro Dimitri). Her artistic work is strongly influenced by her lengthy record of workshops and interchanges with David Zambrano.
As a performer, in 2013 Rodriguez received the DanceWeb scholarship from ImpulsTanz under the mentorship of Ivo Dimchev, and she performed with Ayelen Parolin, DE MAAN and Siamese Cie, among others. With Micha Goldberg, she made The Primal Money Scream (2014, CAMPO), which was selected for the Young Work category at the Theater aan Zee festival, and The Garden Laboratorium (2015, CAMPO). Currently, she is performing in collaboration with Simon Van Schuylenbergh in his project Ne Mosquito Pas (2020), and she is part of the successful retro-futuristic operatic production A Revue (2020) by Benjamin Abel Meirhaeghe. She also did the choreography for his Madrigals. In addition, she is responsible for the coaching and is one of the performers in A Bigger Thing by Lisi Estaras at Opera Ballet Vlaanderen.
