A lifelong athlete, Sonya Smith discovered dance at Macalester College while earning a degree in Biology and Environmental Studies. Since moving to the Bay Area, she has become a principle collaborating member of Eat Cake Productions, creating quirky, feminist aerial clowning, and Lizz Roman and Dancers, a site specific, modern dance company. Additionally, she has performed with Project Bandaloop, Kim Epifano/Epiphany Productions, and Zaccho Dance Theater, among many others. Smith's choreography, presented in Portland, Kansas City, and San Francisco, combines aerial apparatus, modern dance and contact improvisation. In 2006 she was awarded a residency from the Jon Sims Center for the Arts to create innovative, site-specific aerial dance work. The Cable, The Fire Escape and the Elevator Shaft highlighted the unique theater space, including the windows, the fire escape entrance and the freight elevator into the work. Smith worked and lived at 848 Community Space and coordinated construction of its new space and identity, CounterPULSE, in the SOMA district of San Francisco.
