Mona Namér is a Moroccan-Swedish director, choreographer and dancer from Gothenburg, Sweden. Since the age of eight, Mona has built a strong foundation in Hip Hop and House dance, while gleaning inspiration, education and a physical vocabulary from around the world. She spent a year and a half honing her practice at Broadway Dance Center in New York, followed by years of travelling between Paris, Johannesburg, London and New York.
Mona merges her experience and breadth of knowledge and uses them to create a repertoire of new expressive narratives in movement and visual art. She is active in different elds such as dance and lm productions, theatre, directing, teaching, commercial work, photography and various projects. Her work explores identity, human behaviour, surrealism, rituals and a sense of floating inside and outside of your own body.
Mona’s innate curiousity and desire to experiment with different forms of creative expression have led to collaboration and work with lauded artists, companies and celebrated festivals such as Little Dragon, Branko, IKEA, VOLVO, Afropunk Festival and Gothenburg Opera.
