Artist Statement 

I am an interdisciplinary, performing artist working across movements, video, installation, and social engagement. I tell overlooked stories of intersectional identities. As a research-based artist, my work is informed by In body and oral archives, dialogical art, and somatic practices. I work with different perspectives. In order to collaborate with as many viewpoints as possible, intensive research with various interlocutors often precedes my work. My work is rooted in the concept of identity that links cultural expression with corporeal forms and movements. I focus on African contemporary dance aimed at repositioning the continent's dance culture at the core of community-based living through the process of recollection and reclamation of traditional dances.


Through my performances and choreographies, I aspire to create an inventory of somatic language from the collective memory of African bodies and make it available to the contemporary audience.
