Bow, East

You are cordially invited to Sofia’s birthday party!... A birthday party with cake, wine, music and bittersweet reminiscing of years passed. In many ways a birthday party like any other, but not quite... 




Sofia the Show” is a devised, autobiographical, site-responsive piece. We’re invited to Sofia’s house, to share with her the songs and stories of her life. She opens up her home and her heart and welcomes us in.


                                

 



'Sofia the show' is a performance piece that could so easily, in different hands, make for uncomfortable viewing. It is personal. It is emotionally charged. And the person performing it is in the same room as you, only a few steps away – handing you cake, asking you questions, making eye contact. But this is a performance of absolute confidence, as well as great humour and charm. There is something delightful about squashing into a kitchen, a sitting-room, a bedroom, blurring the boundaries between audience, witnesses and participants. It is a kind of collaborative theatre and the reason it works is because Sofia puts you at your ease. You feel intrigued, but safe. You are happy to return eye contact. And you really want to know out what happens next.."
