In 1998, she founded La Compagnie du Zerep and premiered her first show. She has since written scripts, designed sets, directed and designed costumes for over thirty shows. Sophie, along with the Zerep team has been developing original vocabulary in theater, dance and visual arts. A platform deliberately free of all hierarchies, where all forms of cultural strata, influences, loans and simulacra coincide.
