Sandrine Monin is a contemporary dance choreographer.
Her work transports her audience into poetic and surrealistic atmospheres and creates relatable and emotionally engaging experiences.
Her unique choreographic signature is visceral, marrying strong physicality, sophisticated technique and human sensitivity. It is built on over 12 years’ experience as a professional dancer around Europe and the UK for renowned company (Staatstheater am Gärtnerplatz, Phoenix Dance Theatre).
She has created works for dance and theatre companies and youth groups. Calyx (Phoenix Dance Theatre) was nominated ‘Best premiere 2017’ in Dance Europe magazine. That same year, she was identified as future leader by One Dance UK’s mentoring programme. Since 2019, she is developing her independent work supported by Arts Council England.
Continuously developing her competences (MA Dance Practice from Palucca Schule Dresden and MA Choreography from Central School of Ballet), she craves for collaborative works with artists of other disciplines.
She also makes a point of nurturing and sharing her passion teaching the younger generation as well as strongly advocating dance in our society.
