Professor, TeaK/Master's Degree Programme in Choreography

+358405456350
Introduction

Monni has had a long career as a choreographer, dancer, teacher, curator and researcher. Her list of works includes over 30 contemporary dance pieces with a common denominator of comprehensiveness of bodily articulation and usage of different forms of expression and philosophical orientation. She has been founding, building, and co-directing Zodiak – Centre for New Dance for two decades and been a member of the artistic directors group of the Theatre Academy’s Helsinki Act festival, as well as a Zodiak’s Side Step Festival.

Monni has received numerous awards, e.g. Suomi palkinto – Finland state prize/award from the National Council for Circus and Dance and the five year state artist grant in 1996, 2002, and 2008. She was appointed to the Performing Arts Council of the Arts Promotion Center under the Ministy of Culture and Education for years 2015-2018 (chair 2016-2018).

In 2004, Monni was granted the Doctoral Degree in Dance at the Theatre Academy. The written part of her dissertation was the first broad theory concerning the ontology of dance to be published in Finnish. In her artistic dissertation, she researched changes in dance paradigms in the 20th century and created new dance ontology with the help of Martin Heidegger’s philosophy of existence and art ontology. Monni has been Theatre Academy’s Professor in Choreography since the beginning of 2009 and is the Head of the Master’s Degree Programme in Choreography. She has also been a member of the Theatre Academy’s board (2010-2012), Research Council (2009-2017), Recruitment Council (2017-) and Performing Arts Research Center's management group (2009-2013), Department of Dance’s management group (2009-2013), publication committee  (2009-) Chair 2014-.
