Sari Nordman makes dances and videos, teaches dance, and loves to travel to the isolated parts of the world. She has presented her choreography in the US and her native Finland, and has enjoyed artist residencies nationally and internationally. She has worked with choreographer Dean Moss since 2009, and holds an M.F.A. from NYU/Tisch Dance. She has taught dance to various ages, abilities and backgrounds of students and has worked as a teaching artist in NYC public schools since 2007. Most recently she has received funding from Finlandia Foundation National in support of her art-making.
Her aim as an artist is to let her simple, humble human life and art-making dissolve into one interconnected entity where both enrich and feed each other. She also wants to present her knowledge of a female body and mind, and become more conscious of women’s possibilities and skilled in sharing that information. The aim of her artistic practice is to cultivate poetry and explore humanity.
