Tania Soubry is a performer and choreographer working within the interconnection between text, dance, music and performance art. Her practice resides within a poetic theatre of consciousness and myth, especially through the body and the voice, using language, singing and movement. All that resides within and without. Inner reaches of outer space.
She deals with our contemporary situation, asking questions about the challenges humanity faces, and creating fictive utopias so as to deal with the present and offer suggestions to our psychic conceptions about possible futures.
Her work’s intentions are multi-sensorial, witty and aesthetical experiences in the service of a global community in synthesis and reverence for all, the earth and the cosmos. A celebratious ceremony.
She creates work: soul-scapes (2018) in collaboration with Catherien Elsen, beat’n’shine (May 2013-May 2014) within a one year Boost program through Trois C-L, consisting of 8 residencies within Europe, soulsongdances (2013), Two people coming together (2009), I’ll crane for you (2008), a Deborah Hay solo adaptation, Back to the roots with Jimy (2008), it (instead of twenty-one-words) (2006), Wholly (2003)
