Kei Soares Cobb


Kei is a Cape Verdean-American choreographer, sound designer, performance artist, and healer. Since studying music technology and western philosophy at Northeastern University, Kei has pursued a more traditional education under the wings of mentors, masters, and spirit guides. Grounded in animist practice, Kei’s work lives in a lineage of dis-located African bodies invoking technology and flesh to render ambient/ancestral rhythms in an ongoing process of re:orientation. Kei is an artist-in-residence at AS220’s Blackbox Theatre and is supported by the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts in development of their latest work, experimental opera Basso Continuo
