Originally from Cumbria, Sophie has been living around the corner from metal for the past four years (although she seems to always be away on tour). She works in theatres and outdoor arts events as a performer, stage manager and maker and is also at the beginning of a journey into social and therapeutic horticulture.
At Metal Sophie will explore ideas for a new experiential project that takes participants on a theatrical journey through the canopies of trees. This first stage is about collecting stories and facts, dreaming up details of the experience, and considering the practicalities of getting people into treetops.
Now, more than ever, it is vital to understand, experience and engage with nature.
