Born in Berlin, Isabel Mohn moved to Montreal to complete her training in contemporary dance at LADMMI. Since 2000, her works have been presented in Montreal at Tangente and various Maisons de la culture, in St. John’s, Newfoundland, and in Finland and Germany. Mohn is currently collaborating with French choreographer Sylvain Groud to develop a dance project for a hospital setting.
Bringing together artists from different backgrounds and artistic disciplines, the choreographer’s work expresses the desire to understand - and overcome - cultural, social and psychological obstacles that come between the individual and his or her environment. Particularly focussed on creating a connection with the audience, the works of Isabel Mohn are generally presented in non-traditional spaces. Each piece is also based on an approach that favours human contact, all the while questioning the conventional definitions of dance and performance.
