Sonia Hughes is an artist, writer, director and performer based in the North of England. A long standing collaborator with contemporary theatre makers Quarantine, she currently works in a duo with choreographer/ artist Jo Fong. She’s worked with director Juliet Ellis, choreographer Jane Mason, and performance artist Mem Morrison. Sonia has been making art for over 20 years, but you’ve probably never heard of her. She’s a great collaborator (Darren Pritchard, ANU Productions, Lisa Mattocks, Jeremy Deller) but has rarely taken centre stage. I am from Reykjavik is her first major foray into making solo work in the public realm.
Sonia is an Associate Artist at Festspillene i Nord-Norge. Harstad, Norway until 2023
