More About Myself...

My name is Koloto Siraji, a Ugandan contemporary artist and researcher. My method explores the bagisu philosophies of dance and art. Embracing and celebrating the bagisu traditions through the lens of modernity. It is my intention to revisit the old wisdom of dance. My creation lab inhabits a space between merging the traditional and urban dance forms to spark out fragments of a contemporary wave.
I work between the error of post-colonialism and decolonization. Investigating the body as a medium to give new narratives. I’m curious about how I can use the body in space to transfer information and dance the agony in humanity. My art is most grounded in the lives of my communities and my ancestry. I’m most interested in making people feel, think and question; in relation to environment, politics, and humanity. My work offers no easy answers but seeks to provoke questioning in the audience; triggering them to think and seek individual perception and responsibility in the action. I produce my work as performances, dance films and installation art.

When the body speaks,
Silence becomes the loudest voice.

As a contemporary artist with an African heritage and backbone of the bugisu philosophies of art, it is in my DNA to dance, to move and feel the atmosphere of flow, to be vibrant and aggressive. But some stories I choose to tell by creating images and spaces of fantasy to give viewers time to dig in the art work and seek their own interests, imaginations and meanings.
