Horror Project

Horror Project is a new group choreography looking at ghosts and haunted houses as metaphors for how histories of slavery and colonialism haunt the present.

 

From June to August 2021 Seke undertook residencies at Dance4, Bluecoat, Newstead Abbey and The Place, funded by ACE Project Grants, joined by a group of 5 dancers - Natifah White, Rose Sall Sao, Rhys Dennis, Alethia Antonia, and Adrienne Ming; as well as dramaturg Charlie Ashwell.

 

Previous research residencies have taken place at The Place (Choreodrome), Battersea Arts Centre, Wainsgate Dances and Chats Palace during 2019 & 2020.
