Salomé Mooij (The Hague, 1990) studied philosophy at the university of Ghent and theatre directing at the theatre academy RITCS in Brussels. Currently she works as a theatre maker and performer, focusing on developing her artistic practice, supported by SoAP, C-TAKT, De Brakke Grond, wpZimmer, De Nwe Vorst and METROPOLIS/KIT.
Salomé makes insitu work by means of physical thinking exercises that are characterized by a longing for scanning, unfolding and connecting the micro and macro levels in our existence. In this way she tries to understand the world around her and to approach it as openly as possible. Within these theatrical frameworks, she examines the connections that are possible between different realities in the city, paying special attention to what is hidden from our view.The participants to her exercises become part of the investigation of their own realities.
Salomé Mooij is one of the artists of SoAP Maastricht.
