New Work

 

Seke is currently researching a new group choreography looking at ghosts and haunted houses as a metaphor for how histories of slavery and colonialism haunt the present.

 

In September 2020 Seke is undertaking a residency as part of Choreodrome 2020 at The Place, joined by a group of 5 dancers - Natifah White, Rose Sall Sao, Rhys Dennis, Alethia Antonia, and Adrienne Ming; and dramaturg Charlie Ashwell.

 

Previous research residencies have taken place at Battersea Arts Centre, Wainsgate Dances and Chats Palace during 2019.

 

Upcoming residencies in 2021 are taking place at The Place, Newstead Abbey, Dance4 and Bluecoat, Liverpool.
