I am multidisciplinary performing artist and a dance theatre maker of Rwandan heritage. I create a variety of work that explores the themes of African tradition, and cultural norms, investigating the effect they have on people from the global south who were born or have lived in the western communities most of their lives.
My art seeks to engage with less conventional performance settings and platforms to promote visibility and accessibility. I strive to create thought provoking and inclusive pieces which challenge the preconceived ideologies regarding issues such as black masculinity/ black African people (amongst many other).
I endeavour to implement approaches that encourage artists and people from the global south to come forward in hopes of sharing their diverse and culturally rich skills and activities across both professional and community engagement settings.
