Portrait of Soa Ratsifandrihana

Soa Ratsifandrihana is a French-Malagasy dancer and choreographer. After studying at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris, Soa started out as a dancer in creations by James Thierrée (Tabac Rouge) and Salia Sanou (Du désir d'horizons). She then joined Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker's company Rosas.

Alongside her work as a performer, Soa develops her own work. Today, she is based in Brussels where she has introduced her solo g r oo v e.

At present, Soa is interested in movement, music and poetry. Through dance, she wants to achieve a synthesis between spontaneity and rigorous composition, against a background of history that resembles her. Soa is associate artist at Kaaitheater from 2023 to 2025.
