Seke Chimutengwende

GUEST CURATOR for Morning classes programme, Summer 2021

About Seke's curation:

Ways of being: approaches to choreographic practice

Five artists bring choreographic practices, materials and questions into the frame of the morning class. Taking choreography as way of being in the world, an approach to living, moving and thinking, each artist will offer an embodied insight into their past, present and future choreographic processes.
