Research Interests

My research interests focus on street dance and its relationship with the African diaspora as archive and practice. My main research is popping improvisation as a somatic form, along with film as a cultural tool to develop narratives around my research.

Related study UK jazzdance, hip hop, migration, otherness, film, performance, and speculative future. ​
