Presenting a new solo dance work by Mufutau Yusuf
Òwe by Mufutau Yusuf is a solo dance that draws on another way of looking at one’s identity, history, and archives. By contesting with existing facts and knowledge, breaking them apart and reinventing them, this work aims to re-evaluate what I know about myself, my experiences, my ancestry and tradition, my belief systems, and how all these come to influence my daily life and experiences.
Mufutau Yusuf is a Nigerian-born Irish performer based between Ireland and Brussels. A graduate of Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance, Mufutau currently works with Belgian company Wim Vandekeybus/Ultima Vez and, in Ireland, with Liz Roche Company, John Scott’s IMDT, United Fall, and Pan Pan, among others.
