Guest Artist In Residency Robert Ssempijja
Sunday, November 11 through Wednesday, November 14, 2018
Robert Ssempijja is a Ugandan contemporary dance artist and dance researcher who is having a career both through formal and informal dance setting experiences.
In his art, he uses a combination of Ugandan traditional dance, breakdance and techniques of contemporary dance to get those interesting creations of art. He is schooled in techniques from Burkina Faso and has recently completed his diploma in dance at Ecolé des Sables in Senegal. Back home in Uganda, he shares his knowledge in dance in the professional dance community, but he is also a part of developing contemporary dance in Uganda. This he mostly does through voluntary work with dance practice for kids in Uganda, lessons for other professionals and as well as setting up a platform for emerging dancers within East Africa called Dance Revolution East Africa (DREA).
