Sophie Austin

Sophie is a theatre and film director based in London. She is Creative Director at SHH Productions, a female led film production company and Creative Associate at international arts organisation Dash Arts.

Sophie was founder and Artistic Director of critically acclaimed theatre company Teatro Vivo from 2004-2019. Over that time she staged over twenty productions in weird and wonderful spaces and places - from an old telephone exchange in Oxford to the Woolwich Arsenal. Her work pushes at the boundaries of what theatre can be and invites a collaborative response between audience, performer and space to create truly unique and magical moments that resonate long after the experience is over.

Sophie's work is currently focused on telling essential and hope filled stories that bond us to the environment and allow us embrace our connections to the natural world, to feel rescued, rejuvenated and inspired to rise up in support of the urgent actions needed to alleviate our impact on the planet.
