We champion a unique form of expression fashioned and fueled by the desire to unite, connect, learn and create through the human experience.
After 10 years of performing and developing his artistic practice with various world-renowned choreographers, in September 2015 Dickson decided to do a master's degree in choreography at London Contemporary Dance School. In the spring of 2017 and on the verge of completing his MA, he was awarded a Trailblazers Starters Fellowship by the Dance of the African Diaspora Team at One Dance UK, which lead him to Farooq Chaudhry OBE. The two met at the Renaissance Hotel café in St. Pancras and the conversation laid the foundation for their collaboration culminating in the creation of Dickson Mbi Company in 2018.
Rooted in his early training in the street dance form of popping and the amalgamation of dialects that organically emerged from many contemporary dance performances, Dickson Mbi developed a unique form of expression fashioned and fueled by the desire to unite, connect, learn and create through the human experience. Dickson along with a world-renowned team of creatives and collaborators spanning across all forms of visual and performing arts, together they avoid compromise and create authentic work that challenges the way people connect through dance. Drawing upon Dickson’s hybrid cultural experience of his African heritage and East London upbringing, he embraces the cultures of others to reflect the uniqueness of each human experience.
