Exocé is a multidisciplinary Afrocentric Artist: Artistic performer, dancer, model, visual artist and artistic director. He mostly performs alone in improvisation and creation of stories or in the transmission of a language for other creators. His dance style is experimental storytelling.
He considers himself as an Afropean because he was born in 1995 in Paris of Congolese parents, so he has a double culture.
Marked by a story between two worlds, Exocé grows up in a very humble environment and understands very early on that through Art he can break all barriers and reach the sensitivity of the people around him. Thanks to his years of experience, Exocé confirms himself as a dancer (Krump / Hip-hop) with Afro/Contemporary influences and starts to develop his own body language. His dance is mostly based on improvisation, expressing the true self in the present moment. He is also a visual artist and has started a series of afrofuturistic/afro cosmic/ afropunk analog collages that then gave birth to a fashion brand KASAPIO.
He has collaborated with many artists like Patrice, Swift Guad, Katerinha, Sevdaliza or Stéphane Ashpool. His artistic universe is Afrocentric, a return to the African roots linking ancestrality and modernity within the diaspora.


Le Voyage - An Improvised Artistic Dance Performance Based on a Search for Roots

Natisa Exocé Kasongo

It is the story of an afrodescendant who seeks his place in society. Everywhere he goes, whether in Africa or in Europe, he is seen as an outsider. He is black in Europe and white in Africa. It is through his spiritual search that he accepts his Afropeanity and it is also through this that he encounters the Afrofuturist school of thought.
