You mention Mon Oncle and Jason and the Argonauts as some of your earliest inspirations. What about these films inspired you?
They both explored different worldviews, fantastical and absurd; worlds of the imagination that were both very visual and far from mundane. I was an introverted child and these films inspired me, as I would place myself in them and escape.
Where else do you find inspiration?
I find inspiration in everything. One just has to be attentive.
How do you think technology has changed art and how it is consumed?
One of the advantages of technology is that we can reach a wider audience with our work.
The down side is that some art is becoming like fast food. It hard to predict where it’s going but AI is on the horizon, how this will affect the art, God only knows.
What kind of stories are you attempting to tell through your work?
My work is mainly about the black body through the black male lens. Personal and political.
Tell us about your workshops and masterclasses. What do they cover and who should attend?
My masterclass focuses on visual theatre, making the connection between the body and emotion as the starting point, and then I introduce text. Curious people should attend.
