Sophie Wood

Sophie Wood is a sequin lover, a poet, and a clown. Born and raised in the woods of Vermont, she splits her year between life as a performance artist and chasing runaway pigs on the flower farm. Her artistic practice is focused on the creation of collaborative work, both performative and visual, as the curatorial leader of The Royal Frog Ballet collective. She also teaches Shakespeare and clowning, works in textile, dabbles in cartoon, dances when she gets the chance, is currently writing a book of poems, and has worked with Bread and Puppet Theater and The Cleveland Museum of Art’s Parade the Circle, waggling puppets and parading in circles. She is thrilled to be at GIA on the 20th anniversary of her time there as a student. www.theroyalfrogballet.com
