Behaving Oneself

Drama, Theatre and Performance Research Seminars, Online: Zoom

17:30 - 19:00

Presented by Sheila Chukwulozie

Nigerian artist Sheila Chukwulozie's practice battles the politics of "behaving oneself" in a Catholic-colonial body through juxtaposing local rituals, modern technology, traditional myths, and movement styles. Chukwulozie primarily focuses on language and traces her body for emotions that she feels she has not been allowed to express; either because the emotion has been culturally misdiagnosed, erased, or perhaps, is simply non-existent in the English canon which has come to be her first language. Sheila will be doing a presentation of her artistic practice.
