Antonio is an award-winning performer, dance choreographer, and teacher from Uganda. His artistic practice draws on a blend of styles, namely Hip-hop, dancehall, breaking, afro-fusion, contemporary, house and indigenous Ugandan dances.

Antonio leveraged peer-to-peer learning in informal local communities of dance practice in Uganda to develop his skillset and knowledge base. This background enriches his pedagogy with a community-arts approach.

Antonio was awarded the Pina Bausch Fellowship in 2017 as a visiting dance scholar at the University of Auckland. He also received the Caroline Plummer Community Dance Fellowship at the University of Otago in 2019. Antonio’s artistic philosophy seeks to bridge the gap between street-based community arts practice and academia.

With over 15 years of dance experience, Antonio has worked in diverse cultural, artistic, and social contexts. These include disadvantaged communities in slums, orphanages and refugee centres; theatres, festivals, and schools in Uganda, Europe, and New Zealand. Antonio has worked with high-level academic institutions such as The University of Auckland, The University of Otago, Makerere University, Codarts Dance Center, Pacifika Institute of Performing Arts and the Norwegian College of Dance.
