SERAFINE1369 is the London based artist and dancer Jamila Johnson-Small. SERAFINE1369 works with dancing as a philosophical undertaking, a political project with ethical psycho-spiritual ramifications for being-in-the-world; dancing as intimate technology.

Their research is presented as live performances, installations, video and writing.

SERAFINE1369’s  practice is relational, cumulative and often collaborative and they work in various constellations, at different scales and in different roles to build spaces for communing/attuning/communicating. The work involves dancing, listening, text, darkness, voice, video, bass to invite forms that emerge through the live unfolding of the tension between things that produce meaning, towards making spaces that might hold the complex, multiple and contradictory, spaces that consider movement and transformation as inevitable.

Together with Fernanda Muñoz-Newsome they are working on a new stage performance that will premiere in London in March 2022.
