- About -

Akeim is a multifaceted performing artist, born in Jamaica and raised in England. He seeks to create moving, thought provoking, accessible, organised and free spirited projects. Since graduating from the Northern School of Contemporary Dance with a first-class honours Bachelor degree in Performing Arts, Akeim has been involved in multiple cross disciplinary programmes with a wide range of artists and communities from around the world. His focus as a maker and collaborator is to combine expressive skills such as dance, writing, film, poetry, beat-box, singing and acting to create performances that tell stories to bring together diverse audiences. Akeim finds joy and ease in working with communities and artist of all abilities, from different ages and backgrounds, from professionals to non-professionals. This was sparked from his time working in Wriggle Dance Theatre, Freedom Studios and Ballet Lorent. For example, Akeim has cooperated with Leeds Black Elders Association in numerous projects. From the intergenerational Leeds Seeds, a community art intervention with children and elders in Chapeltown, Leeds, to his one man dance theatre show, Windows Of Displacement, the elders have been imperative to some of Akeim’s creative processes.
