Metaforestry was born from a tree-call to deepen the connection with nature. From here Sophie developed the core poetry & concept before being joined by Emmi Mantaeu who created the Metaforestry album.

Metaforestry toured festivals including Carrying The Fire, Wilderness, and Uncivilisation in 2013, but her seed was a series of guerilla events in forests – a suitable location would be scouted out, then coordinates, date, and time were sent to a closed Facebook events page 24hrs in advance. This was a way of reclaiming our right to create with the trees without paperwork or permission.
