"Sorry?" is a one woman show reflecting on Sophie’s relationship with her deafness.

The show slides between humility and extravagance, offering a generous performance about discovering oneself. Sophie guides the audience through a journey of establishing identity by transitioning through scenes reminiscent of her experience of the world contending with her deafness.

She has worked with the ideas of concealing and revealing through the use of lights and costume as an extension of the body, to create a piece of DIY visual art theatre. She approaches this with a charming and honest performance style. The piece uses the space creatively, with moments of close proximity with the audience encouraging them to immerse themselves within Sophie's dance.

'I actually laughed out loud because it was so brilliant!'
