Say hello to this brand new work-in-progress piece from our Associate Artist 22/24.

Exciting times for our Associate Artist Mufutau Yusuf as we announce his new commission 'Impasse', Mufutau's brand new original work which explores the diasporic experience, particularly the black African diaspora.

This work-in-progress piece questions what it means to be a diasporic entity, how one inhabits spaces in which their existence is not clearly marked, and how memory becomes critical to identity. It’s also an attempt to understand the nuances and complexities around the autonomy of black bodies.

Mufutau will showcase this work-in-progress piece at Dublin Dance Festival with Originate, on Friday 19th and Saturday 20th May 2023.
Impasse by Mufutau Yusuf is commissioned by Liz Roche Company through an Arts Council Commission Award and supported by Solstice Arts Centre. Mufutau Yusuf is Associate Dance Artist at Liz Roche Company 2022 - 24.
