Sophina Flores
Lighting Designer

Sophina holds a BA in Theatre and Dance from Amherst College. She is the founder of local dance theatre company Roots and All Theatre Ensemble, centering marginalized identities and breaking the boundaries of realism, who you may know from productions such as Liminal and The Between Spaces. As a Lighting Designer, a sampling of her shows include Medea, Dr. Faustus, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, Proof, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, Alkestis and Fiddler on the Roof. Most recently she worked as an Assistant Lighting Designer to Marika Kent at Portland Center Stage’s Gem of the Ocean. As a theatre maker, playwright, director, deviser, and choreographer, her work centers the intersectionality of identities as a bisexual Puerto Rican woman, and prominently features themes of mental illness and trauma, with surrealist or magical realist motifs.
