She grew up in an artist family where she from an early age was
taking part in performances, workshops and went on tour with her
father's theatre group El Teatro de la Memoria from
Bogotá. In 2000 she worked for 2 years at the Rosario Islands

In 2006 Sofia travelled to Europe to participate in the Odin
Teatret workshop-performance Ur-Hamlet, after which she
spent a period studying the Odin Teatret archives. Since 2008 she
has taken part in the international research group The Bridge
of Winds lead by Iben Nagel Rasmussen, and in 2010 she
produced the group's meeting with Colombia.
Sofia is currently part of the Odin Teatret ensemble performance
The Chronic Life and participates in parades, barters,
cultural interventions as well as assisting Iben Nagel Rasmussen in
her workshops on actors' training.
