I am a Black/Nigerian performance maker, community organizer, and birth doula currently based in Harlem, New York. My work intertwines movement, sound, and visual art to explore themes of Afrofuturism, memory processing, and healing. My performance and academic research investigates how lived and inherited trauma is encoded and archived in the body, and how we may mine performance for futurity by engaging the physical tools of our history.

I have worked and trained in Berlin, Vienna, and Melbourne with artists that include Maria Scaroni, Thomas DeFrantz, Melanie Lane, Prue Lang, Aaron Landsman, Lear deBessonet, and Laurie Woolery.

I also serve as Community Coordinator for the Public Works initiative at the Public Theater. I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a BA in English, Theater, and Dance from Princeton University in 2016.
