Sophie Mars is a performance artist, dancer, dance movement therapist, movement director 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.
