Soroa Lear is a Cuban-American dancer, performer and writer based in Berlin. She completed her studies in contemporary dance and comparative literature at Reed College, which sparked her interest in the intersections between critical theory and movement. In her practice, she explores the ways in which movement can enable a reordering of our subjectivity, allowing relationality, pleasure, and physical affect to determine our understanding of the self. In this centering of sensation, there lies the potential to become ‘undone’; to experience the body outside of its linguistic and subjected identity, and instead through bodily sensation. Her practice is heavily influenced by Gaga, contact improvisation and Berlin's nightclub culture - something she was able to practice and study thanks to a research grant she received in 2019. She has performed and worked with Oriantheater, Sebastian Abarbanell, Nora Tormann, and Søren Siebel amongst others. Her written works have been published by Penny Press and Confluence Journal.
