Seke Chimutengwende works in dance as a performer, choreographer and teacher. As a performer he has worked with companies such as DV8 Physical Theatre, Lost Dog and Fabulous Beast, and has performed over 60 solo improvisations internationally.
For his company Seke Chimutengwende & Friends he has choreographed four works including The Time Travel Piece for The Place Prize 2012 and King Arthur, which premiered at the London-based The Yard Theatre in 2015. His collaborative duet with Alexandrina Hemsley Black Holes premiered at The Place Theatre, London in 2018. His 2019 choreographed performance Plastic Soul tells the story of the rise and fall of a mythical performer, whose image and identity are constantly morphing.
In 2017, Chimutengwende contributed to Iniva’s Research Network event ‘Predictions, Projections and Speculations’ where he presented research and performance from his collaboration with Hemsley in their Black Holes project. In the event Chimutengwende and Hemsley navigate and destabilise Afrofuturist explorations of time in order to provoke critical questions around existence, identity and erasure.
Chimutengwende is a guest lecturer in improvisation at London Contemporary Dance School, The Rambert School of Ballet & Contemporary Dance, Central School of Speech and Drama and Goldsmiths University. Seke has also worked as a movement director for theatre productions at The Yard, Battersea Arts Centre and The Gate Theatre.
