Currently working on:

I am currently working on a Dance Theatre work in Vienna, Austria "KINGX & QWEENS" a collaboration between Dschungel Wien & Unusual Beings & Tebandeke Joseph.

Quick Facts:

I am a dancer and choreographer from Uganda. My work stretches the idea of dance, expanding into further contemporary art practices a.o. drawings and sculptures. My work involves communities in that it addresses urgent social challenges, mainly dominant ideas around ability. I use my body to create my own dictionary of ability. I have developed a physical practice that encompasses different local and global traditions of dance and movement. I am a dancer within a society that systematically marginalises “disabled” people. In my role as a choreographer, I mobilise local communities to rethink and relabel the notion of “disability”. I am committed to decolonising dance as a language and facilitating access to the benefits of diversity and different understandings of ability.

Highest educational degree:

Diploma in Dance and Leadership skills and Facilitation (VIVA together for children)
