- About Moa Franzén
Moa Franzén (b. 1985) is an artist, writer and choreographer based in Stockholm. Her practice encircles choreography and writing as interrelated practices, with a special interest in voice as choreographic material and expression. She investigates the relation between performer and audience, writer and reader, by directing attention to and playing with the different forms of submission and opposition that are at play in social relations. Franzén’s works uses the contract of the performative space, the contract between performer and audience, writer and reader, as a material in itself. By directing attention to the very acts of communication – vocal as well as non-vocal expressions – and the violence as well as restorative potential that comes with them, she tries to make or find breaks or gaps where another kind of listening, another kind of communication – other faculties of attention – can be sketched out and engaged with. Franzén has a MFA in Choreography from New Performative Practices at The School of Dance and Circus, Stockholm.
