Sophie Guisset (1987, Tournai, BE) is a performer and performance maker. After completing her education in acting at the Royal Conservatory of Mons (BE) in 2011, she took part in the Dance Intensive Program at Tanzfabrik Berlin in 2013. She has been collaborating with a.o. Olga Tsvetkova, Fanny Brouyaux, Consolate Sipérius, Enis Turan, Natasza Gerlach and Phillip Urrutia.
Her creations have been shown in Bâtard festival (BE), Latitudes Contemporaines (FR), Théâtre de la Balsamine (BE), Beursschouwburg (BE), Santarcangelo festival (IT), Théâtre du Grutli (CH), Tanzfabrik Berlin (DE),ao.
Her artistic practice focuses on the notions of intimacy, pleasure and playfulness. In her performances, she engages with spaces that allow protagonists, or players, to find a certain freedom and safety in order to explore private spheres. She is interested in how queer spaces are imagined, politically conceived and socially organised, from a feminist point of view. In the projects she develops, she aims at exploring the social and sexual dynamics at play in these spaces.
In 2022, Sophie will start a new research project, “Vanilla”, in collaboration with performers and makers Enis Turan, Cee Füllemand and Lisa Vereertbrugghen.
