Born in Korea. Raised in Belgium.
Home in Antwerp, Aarschot & Amsterdam.
Soo Mee has always had a passion for music, ever since she started playing the violin as a little child. It wasn’t until later she got inspired by dance and theatre and so she started taking dance classes several times a week. Soo Mee’s love for dance grew stronger and she decided to continue her training professionally at the Amsterdam University of the Arts - from which she successfully graduated in 2017. Over the last few years she got commited to different companies, both on stage and behind the scenes. Soo Mee is a dancer for "het Vlaams Muziek Theater" and started performing with "Theater Tol" in 2017. She's also the president of the Antwerp based musical theatre company "De Speling". Apart from choreographing musicals such as "SHOUT! the Mod Musical", “Sisters of Swing – The Story of the Andrew Sisters”, "My Fair Lady", "Stepping Out" and "Cabaret", she's also directing and takes part in the entire production process. In 2018, the musical adventure "Madagascar" premiered as her first production as director and choreographer; in 2019 "Cabaret" followed and (hopefully) this season "My Way, a musical tribute to Frank Sinatra" will premiere, which she co-created with Anna van der Burgt. She's also assisting and choreographing for "Team Jacques". Unfortunately "Blinker" got postponed, however we're working hard on the musical "Tot Later".
Meanwhile Soo Mee choreographes her own work, by SooMotion.
In Amsterdam, she discoverd her passion for creating fysical dance theatre and by working on her second piece "The Cube", she started developing her identity as a choreographer. "What's on your mind" and "Where's the revolution" followed the years after, each contributing to the development of her style and signature.
During the first COVID lockdown, in collaboration with talented musician Kris Doms, "Chocuna" was created. A sensory dance performance with live music accompanied by surprising flavors and scents.
Lastely Soo Mee is also active as a aerialist and flow & fire artist.
She took circus classes at Ell circo d'ell Fuego and still traines regularly at PoleXplosion. Over the past few years she performed aerial acts in a.o. "Sirk da Moer" and "Fonteinen Spectaculair" and she worked together with Vilja Duo. She even got to perform at Circus Boxtalino!
Her fire and flow trainings are all coached by Julia Arts, Fire and Light entertainment. With this professional team Soo Mee performed her first full fire show ever, "The Legend of Cora", for which she also created mermaid choreographies and a small lyco/fire torch routine. Working mostly with fans, poi, cups and torches, Soo Mee is totaly in love with the magic of fire!
