Sophie Goldberg is an interdisciplinary performing and visual artist based in Baltimore, MD. Since graduating from the BFA program in Interarts performance at the University of Michigan in April 2017 with a minor in creative writing, Sophie has worked as an Early Literacy Tutor at a Judy Center in Baltimore, MD through Reading Corps and the Literacy Lab. Sophie communicates intimacy through writing, video, audio, installation, graphics, and movement.
Sophie’s artistic pursuits began with music, graphic design, and dance. In primary school, she dreamt of collaging all interests together into a cohesive form. Since joining the Michigan Interarts program in 2013, Sophie has studied--individually and collaboratively--across a breadth of creative processes, ranging from improvisational dance, to stop-motion animation, to printmaking, to full scale performance installation. Sophie sees the conversational nature of working toward a shared artistic vision as a practice in empathy, problem solving, and originality.
She is an active and founding member of the Call Your Mom performance collective, alongside four of her fellow University of Michigan alumnus, Emma Bergman, Mia Massimino, and E Cadoux. The collective has performed together since 2014, where they got their start in the Duderstadt Video Studio, Argus Gallery, at the Ann Arbor Threads Festival, and across the U of M campus. Now, Call Your Mom operates out of Baltimore, MD and performs across the country, showing at the Cucalorus Film Festival in Wilmington, NC, the Neu Now Online Arts Festival of Amstertdam, and Baltimore's Artscape Sondheim Semifinalist Exhibition.
In the future, Sophie hopes to utilize her artistic interests and skillsets to engage in public art conversations and construct positive social structures. She has experience with grant writing, teaching in a public school setting, presenting to a board, and facilitating conversational and movement-based workshops.
