Soa Ratsifandrihana is a French-Malagasy dancer and choreographer. After studying at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris, Soa started out as a dancer in creations by James Thierrée and Salia Sanou. She then joined Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker’s company Rosas. Among many productions, Soa dances Fase, which was named one of the ‘Best dances of 2019’ by the New York Times. Recently, she joined Boris Charmatz’s team, where she shared her approach to improvisation.
Alongside her work as a performer, Soa develops her own work. Today, she is based in Brussels where she has introduced her solo g r oo v e. At present, Soa is interested in movement, music and poetry. Through dance, she wants to achieve a synthesis between spontaneity and rigorous composition, against a background of history that resembles her.
