Sofía Monsalve was born in 1989 in Colombia. She grew up in an artist family where she from an early age was taking part in performances, workshops and went on tour with her father's theatre group El Teatro de la Memoria from Bogotá. In 2000 she worked for 2 years at the Rosario Islands Natural Park in Colombia as a dolphin trainer.

In 2006 Sofia travelled to Europe to participate in the Odin Teatret workshop-performance Ur-Hamlet, after which she spent a period studying the Odin Teatret archives. Since 2008 she has taken part in the international research group The Bridge of Winds led by Iben Nagel Rasmussen, and in 2010 she produced the group's meeting with Colombia.

Sofía was part of the Odin Teatret ensemble performance The Chronic Life and participated in parades, barters, cultural interventions as well as assisting Iben Nagel Rasmussen in her workshops on actors' training.

Alongside her work with Odin Teatret Sofia participated in the Laboratorio di Altamira, directed by Pierangelo Pompa and is part of the on-going research programme Regula contra Regulam, directed by Raúl Iaiza.
