 Multidisciplinary Performance Artist 

Born in Rwanda, Ziza is a contemporary art practitioner currently based in London and Newcastle. His practice engages with mediums of performance, installation, sound, movement and vocal techniques.  He creates a variety of work that explore various themes related to his ever-changing world. His work shifts and evolves depending on many factors, though the consistent quest to examine and to research beauty remains a fascination in all his work.


Ziza’s practice relies largely on experimental approach to finding new possibilities, engaging with themes that confront and challenge conventions, beliefs, as well as questioning binary and cultural norms. He is particularly interested in the concept of ‘otherness,’ and how to assert it to occupy spaces for representation, visibility and owning one’s voice.    


His work embodies the raw, unrefined energy and expressive dynamism of vast personal experiences or affairs that interest him. Ziza describes his work as both a symphony and cacophony of sights and sounds, possessing an array of creative experiences that are inspired by both his African heritage and the Western environment in which he lives. Thus, creating a dynamic environment for the two cultures to coexist and intersect.
