°1982, lives and works in Brussels and Stockholm
Within the field of the performing arts, Manon Santkin operates as a dancer, choreographer, artistic advisor, process assistant and writer. She graduated from P.A.R.T.S. in 2004 and recently finished a Master in News Performative Practices at Doch, part of the University of the Arts in Stockholm.
She has been collaborating with choreographers Mette Ingvartsen, Salva Sanchis, Xavier Leroy, Sidney Leoni, Eleanor Bauer, Cecilia Lisa Eliceche, Daniel Linehan, Leslie Mannès and Fabrice Samyn.
She also develops projects with sound artist Peter Lenaerts and with designer Nicolas Couturier. Manon regularly takes part in the processes of other artists as a mentor, advisor or dramaturge and sees her role as an interpreter morphing into that of a facilitator of collaborative processes. In her current works Manon revisits the notion of ‘interpretation’ in terms of an ecology of practices and intelligences, self-organization and interactive agencies.
