Sonia Williams – Barbados

Sonia Williams has worked extensively regionally and internationally as a Theatre Artist, Arts Educator and Researcher in African-Caribbean culture. She was a Watson Fellow to Nigeria 1989 (USA) and won the Governor General Award for Excellence in Drama 1998 in Barbados. A Frank Collymore Literary Endowment winner in 2017 and 2018 for her poetry, she has published two books, a novella This Too Will Pass and her prize winning poetry Embodied Knowings. For Sonia, theatre is a liminal space, of myth-making, that evokes communal memory in the collective consciousness – she puts the pieces back together again to meet the needs of the audience.
