Sofía grew up in the mountains, yet has endless footage of the ocean on her phone. She thrives in big urban areas like Mexico City. Dance has been her refuge from age three and painting was her first mode of self-expression — today, movement and strong visuals are present in all her work. Her work as a scholartist brings together Theatre and Film Performance Theory, Women’s Studies, New Media, and Mexican Culture, utilizing all these viewpoints to center the celebration of women.

Favorite acting credits include Henrietta in Silent Sky, Titania in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Emily Webb in Our Town, Ophelia in Love in Ophelia and Monica in AppleTV's Acapulco . Her most recent theatre directing credits include The Wolves and The Convent of Pleasure. Her first short film as a fiction director, Sleeping Wide Awake, is now making the rounds in the festival circuit.

Sofía has just received her MFA in Performance at UGA!
