Silence in Dance

Festivities,religious ululations, charity and couples walking in concert.
Bulldozers walk the streets as dust and skyscrapers rise into the sky...
Silence drifts in when conversations on sex and sexual abuse are incited.
A silence that blankets any pain an incident such as this might cause.
A thin line between Pain and pleasure.
A seduction, a desire, a shame, a child bride.

Director Statement

As a multi media artist, I often work with film or video, text within sculptural installations to explore personal memories of childhood growing up in Uganda as well as current personal narratives. The current project; Letters to my Childhood, tackles a variety of themes including growing up under a British education system, intercultural merges within the Ugandan and global context as well as an identity in flux due to a lack of rooting in an indigenous culture.In some of my work, there’s a representation of the conflict between the child seduction of play and adult obligation of safeguarding children. the work also offers perspectives on human resilience and what can be overcome by representing pain as an emotion that can be touched.
