Sofie Kramer (1990) is an Amsterdam-based theatermaker, performer and writer. Deriving from personal experiences, she examines her inner world from a political and philosophical perspective to tell bigger stories about the influence of power structures on the individual. In this search, she strongly relies on - and rebels against - antique sources such as Greek mythology. The fighting body is a returning theme in her work: the body that tries to fight time, gravity, the gaze of the other. She shows these fights in physical, strongly visual and often multidisciplinary performances, musicality and the body always being the starting point of het process.
She graduated in 2019 at the Directing department of the Institute of Performative Arts in Maastricht. Before, she studied Acting at the Hogeschool voor de Kunsten Utrecht and Literary and Cultural Studies at the University of Amsterdam. She worked as a director's assistent at Orkater, Internationaal Theater Amsterdam and Productiehuis Rotterdam. Her soloperformance Er is je nooit een rozentuin beloofd was shown at the Boslab Theaterfestival 2020 in the Amsterdamse Bostheater.
