An IntraHealth International Production
Frank Mugisha is a Rwandan-Ugandan multidisciplinary artist working in East Africa and beyond. He has trained in contemporary dance, breakdance, and African traditional dances, which he fuses to create a unique artistic identity. As a creative facilitator, filmmaker, educator, and performer, Mugisha uses his art as a tool for self-expression and vehicle for social change.
Mugisha's work has sent him all around the world. He focuses on the continuous unlearning of all he's been taught as an African man that he feels belittles him and the ways of his people—and he constantly seeks to reinvent and remember new and ancient ways of being in balance with self, others, and his surroundings.
Mugisha is the founder and artistic director of the Instinctual Arts Company based in Kigali, Rwanda. In February 2022, together with his team, Mugisha successfully ran the first edition of the Instinctual Arts Festival in Kigali, Rwanda.
