Seke Chimutengwende is a choreographer, performer, movement director and teacher. 

Seke uses choreography to experiment with collectivity and alternative approaches to authorship and governance; playing with form to shift and question hierarchies. His recent work It begins in darkness (2022), looks at ghosts and haunted houses as metaphors for how histories of slavery and colonialism haunt the present. Seke has also recently choreographed a work for Candoco Dance Company, In Worlds Unknown (2022). He is currently researching a new work, The Last Quartet, which imagines a “last work” or “last attempt” at choreography, which will premiere in 2025. 

Alongside his choreographic work, Seke has been practising completely improvised performance, using movement and text, since 2006. He has performed over 70 solo improvisations internationally and has performed ensemble improvisation with numerous dancers, actors and musicians. He is currently exploring Long Solos: long solo improvisation performances of 50 to 60 minutes.

Since 2004 Seke has performed for numerous dance companies including DV8 Physical Theatre and Lost Dog. Since 2021 Seke has been working as a guest performer with Forced Entertainment touring in shows And on the thousandth night… (2000), If All Else Fails (2023) and Signal to Noise (2024). 


Since 2018 Seke has also worked as a movement director for theatre productions at The Yard Theatre, Battersea Arts Centre, The Gate Theatre, and Camden People's Theatre and regularly works with theatre maker Sue MacLaine. 

Since 2008 Seke has taught in a variety of contexts on a freelance basis. He has most recently been teaching improvisation and composition at London Contemporary Dance School and P.A.R.T.S. in Brussels. Seke regularly mentors and coaches other artists. 

Seke studied dance at Lewisham College 1999 - 2001 and London Contemporary Dance School 2001 – 2004 and went on to train extensively in improvisation with a variety of practitioners and with Andrew Morrish in particular.
