On the Stage

My performance history is as follows. The following are curated by troupe or organisation then by date, although they remain in approximate chronological order overall. I have tried to present links to further production information, images  and reviews where possible – and I will continue to add these as I come across them.

This is simply a list of productions I have been in. for more information about costuming check out the costume or steampunk pages.

Sacrilege Productions

Sacrilege was founded in late 2015 by a group of local queer and  alternative performers. Our goal was to establish a culture of drag, fetish and burlesque performance that actively pushes back against some of the harmful norms in these art forms.

2605x340a copyLady Macduff2013 – Macbeth – Banquo, Lady Macduff

Written by William Shakespeare : Directed by Dale Neil

“The multi-talented Welvaert struts the stage as Banquo and, dressed for combat, she succeeds in creating a credible soldier, and friend to Macbeth of palpable integrity.”

“Sofie Welvaert’s imaginative costumes absolutely do live up to expectation: bizarrely glamorous tartan rags against black, splashed with green satin; slightly steampunk, totally cool. “
