About

I am dance researcher and storyteller. Choreography and Communication are two of my favourite subjects. Perhaps they are one and the same thing. I am particularly interested in theatrical dances and professional practices which draw on dance forms and aesthetics from Africa and the Diaspora. The histories and stories told by ‘Dance’ produced for staging and presentation are philosophically, politically, socially and aesthetically significant. And so are are the stories we tell and the dances we dance in response.

Choreo Confero is an online portfolio documenting some of my work. It exists as a journal but also a conversation starter. I hope some of what you find here interests you. ‘Funmi Adewole is my name. I lecture at De Montfort University England. Thanks for visiting.
