Sophie Mars is a performance artist, dancer, dance movement therapist and body researcher. She is interested in participatory, sensory and immersive work exploring collective energy and idiosyncratic movement as new means of viewing and transforming space both physically and ontologically. Always interrogating the role of the body in today’s digital context, she uses virtual-, and augmented reality to explore physical and virtual interstices, creating uncanny, dreamlike worlds that are both familiar and utterly surreal. All her current work and collaborations are linked to her project ‘Mindful practices for a future body – or how to reprogramme ourselves’, in which she explores and examines new ways of relating to our bodies and environment.

°My studio is a surreal, safe and respectful space for you to learn and explore yourself through movement, using a variety of meditation and movement techniques I have acquired in my dance therapy degree and in courses, workshops and encounters with spiritual guides and teachers across the world.
I believe that we cannot heal through rational thought and my sessions therefore engage with the subconscious part of the brain. For me movement is a key to unlocking our hidden patterns, understanding our dreams and desires and a way to begin the most truthful process of self-understanding. I aim to guide you through your inner worlds and help you feel freer and more at home in your body, enabling integration of your many selves.
