Adejoke Tugbiyele: Shifting the Waves: The Mask, The Boat, The Broom, The Box

Shifting the Waves: The Mask, The Boat, The Broom, The Box is a new solo performance developed by Adejoke Tugbiyele for the London edition. It explores the liberating and transformative powers of movement in decolonising institutional and religious structures between Africa and the West. The performance aims at deepening our understanding of shared resources and their histories, as well as unearthing new narratives in need of voice. More specifically, Tugbiyele invites us to recognise what water can teach us. We are made from water; it cleans us, births us, transports and transforms us.

Adejoke Tugbiyele (b.1977, Brooklyn, New York) graduated with a Master of Fine Arts from the Rinehart School of Sculpture at the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2013. She lives and works in Harlem, New York.

Special project supported by 1-54 and October Gallery, London.
