Nii Kwartey Owoo

Category: Artist

Originally from Accra, Ghana, I am a traditionally trained choreographer in contemporary West African dance and music and currently an African Dance Lecturer on the BA (Hons) Diverse Dance Course at Irie! Dance Theatre, London, accredited by the University of Roehampton. Also a Navigate artist with ACE dance and music, Birmingham, through the Black Choreographic Project.

My work is inspired by traditional cultural practices found in West Africa and diaspora communities. My choreography is strongly influenced by my Ghanaian heritage, including spiritual beliefs, storytelling and symbolism, and also seek to engage with everyday life and contemporary issues in society.
