Sophia Valera Heinecke, 2023 Virtual
Sophia Valera Heinecke (she/her) is a writer for the screen and stage as well as a dramaturg, archivist, and creative consultant. Her play Trash Lord: Renovation is a semi-finalist for the 2023 National Playwrights Conference at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center. While she is a very interdisciplinary artist, Sophia believes theater above all mediums involves a deep consideration of human bodies and their emotional/intellectual output which will be critical to witness and consider as our world continues to transform. She strives to have her live performance works evoke meaningful questions and respectfully respond to the needs of living things.
