Portraits in Otherness is a project that promotes artists who carry multiple identities and whose works dance on the borders of the worlds we know and those we imagine. Originally conceptualized and curated by internationally renowned choreographer and dancer Akram Khan and his creative producer Farooq Chaudhry in 2017, Portraits in Otherness transfers a legacy built on values of international collaboration, creative diversity and artistic hybridity to a new generation of dance artists. The programme consists of two solo works created by highly charismatic and distinctive early-career artists: Dickson Mbi and Joy Alpuerto Ritter.


A solo work inspired by the "masterpiece of strangeness”, Mary Wigman’s Witch Dance. Raised and classically trained in Germany, Joy Alpuerto Ritter examines inherited vocabularies, reconfiguring what it means to summon the power and mystical practices of woman as witch. Combining her roots in Philippine folk dance, classical training and vocabulary of hip hop and voguing, BABAE is a one-woman interplay between the animalistic and sensual qualities of ritual and power.

Developed over one year, Duende represents a significant milestone in Dickson Mbi’s artistic journey. This twenty-minute solo with an original score by Roger Goula intuitively brings together memories from Dickson’s ancestral African heritage, his elite popping skills and his training in contemporary dance. A journey, a memory, a reflection, a ritual and a personal narrative, Dickson’s Duende is a revelation of the soul, breaking the habit of concealing what makes us who we are and finding the confidence to put our soul, its history, and our feelings on display. Dickson Mbi creates an otherworldly fairy tale that brings to life the emotions revealed in these moments of light.
