About this event

Chats Palace second dance commission for our Virtual Stage platform is from choreographer/performer Seke Chimutengwende.

Following the success of his recent Zoom Trilogy of solo improvisations performed live from his living room, Seke will perform a live streamed solo improvisation from Chats Palace.

Moving between dance, poetry, stand-up, storytelling, philosophy and politics, Seke performs without any pre-planned structure or theme, preferring to find both in the moment of performance.

Seke has performed over 60 improvised solos at festivals such as Dance International Glasgow, Rise Festival (Findhorn), Open Look Festival (St. Petersburg), Forest Fringe (Edinburgh), and NOW! Festival (Berlin) as well as night clubs, art galleries, church halls and people's living rooms.

Seke studied dance at Lewisham College 1999 - 2001 and London Contemporary Dance School 2001 – 2004 before performing with companies such as DV8 Physical Theatre and Lost Dog. His choreographies include The Time Travel Piece (runner-up Place Prize 2012) and Black Holes, a collaboration with Alexandrina Hemsley (British Council’s Edinburgh Showcase 2019). Seke is currently researching a new group choreography looking at ghosts and haunted houses as metaphors for how histories of slavery and colonialism haunt the present.
