Sofie Kramer (1990) is theatremaker, performer and writer. She forges her personal experiences into shredded fairytales and mutilated myths as an attempt to tell coherent, big stories against better judgement. 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 in which improvisation is an important factor, keeping her work fluid and unpredictable as an ode to the stumbling but persevering human being.
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. She was mentioned as one of the most promising talents of 2019/2020, her performance being called one of the best theatre experiences of the Corona-theatre season.
