Joshua Sailo

Dancer / Choreographer / Educator / Illustrator

With no pressure to adhere to a specific form or aesthetic, Joshua transforms his experiences into artistic expressions through dance, music, photography, and visual art. His creative practice and research are autobiographical in nature, exploring themes of identity and power from counter-hegemonic perspectives. One of the Artist-in-Residence 2021 at D.R.I.F.T. in Dharamshala, he is currently exploring “folk” as a performance and function of togetherness and experiencing the collective memory. He is a co-founding member of the 206 Dance Collective, investing in the creation and curation of sustainable arts practices and experiences in India. Continuing to grow in range and versatility as a performer, Joshua is currently performing in the works of Preethi Athreya, Ainesh Madan, Surjit Nongmeikapam, and Neopost Foofwa. He also engages with the global dance community through teaching, and podcasting via 'Dancing Through Walls' and 'Why Dance?', and is the creative director and lead illustrator of Aspen Labs.
