Student Profile

Folawole

Folawole (folawole@ucdavis.edu) is an international solo artist and choreographer whose aunt used to call him “chicken feet” in Yoruba when he was a bow-legged baby. He works with various physical, emotional and theoretical possibilities. His work tends to shift between what is and isn’t improvised. He is interested in the production of knowledge around movements that exist with or without our cognitive perception, and is inspired by global exchanges that are safe, healthy, fun, meaningful and sustainable.

Folawole studied at the San Francisco Ballet and is a recipient of the prestigious Djerassi Fellowship. He also teaches dance and choreographs new works throughout the Bay Area.
