About

 

Esie Mensah Creations is committed to bringing a new fresh genre of dance into the industry. Afrofusion is her own unique style of dance that includes movements from Traditional and Contemporary African, Commercial, Urban and Contemporary styles.

Expanding her abilities, Esie has produced several productions; Shades, Zayo and the original play called Akoma which is a dance/ theatre production that premiered in 2015. An excerpt of the production travelled to Birmingham, UK in November 2016 for the One Dance UK conference for Africans of the Diaspora. Recently, Esie was featured on Daily Vice with Congolese- American artist Young Paris discussing Afrobeat music and movement. Esie and Vice director Alexis Wood shot a short documentary surrounding her recent work, Shades of Blackness. It speaks about the issue of shadeism within the black community and several communities of colour. “Dancing with Shades” will air on the “Exhibitionists” on CBC in February. Esie was the movement designer for 1837: Farmer’s Revolt directed by Philip Akin for the 57th season of Shaw Festival.

It was really fun getting to know the team during the project. They were all helpful in answering my questions and made me feel completely at ease. The design ended up being twice as good as I could have ever envisioned!

I'm wondering why I never contacted these guys sooner! Seriously, they all have commendable talent in their respective fields and knocked my concept out of the ballpark. Thanks for an amazing experience!
