Atlanta Eke is a dancer and choreographer concerned with dissolving pre-existing perceptions and expectations by changing fixed representations of the body through movement. She works with and beyond the limitations of the body, in collaboration with fellow dancers, artists and arts administrators in a variety of contexts. Her work with dance is currently project-specific. Within each project a question for the next arises, alongside an effort to deconstruct the modes of production and presentation of the previous work. Having recently had opportunities to present work in exhibition spaces, Eke is interested in how an exhibition space and timeframe can be utilised as a resource for developing dance.
