Yewande YoYo Odunubi

Yewande YoYo Odunubi is an artist, researcher, and cultural producer whose practice centres around the inquiry, "what does the body need to dream?” She is interested in how we see, read, shape and practise ourselves, viewing the body beyond the idea of a singular fixed form, identity or function. Inspired by freestyle and improvisation as choreographic and pedagogical methodologies, Yewande is curious about what can be enacted into space through attuning to intuitive experiences and bodily rhythms. She experiments with movement, performance, film, music, text and facilitation as acts of translation and a means of dialogue with the body’s present and imagined possibilities. Alongside artist, poet and friend Rohan Ayinde, Yewande is one-half of the wayward/motile collaborative duo
