Peter Badejo OBE
Peter Badejo received the OBE at Buckingham Palace on Thursday 12 July.
The founder of Badejo Arts is one of Nigeria’s foremost choreographers, dancers and African performance specialists. He has lived and worked in Britain since 1990 and during that time has made a dramatic impact on British arts in general. Badejo Arts quickly established itself at the cutting edge of contemporary African dance blending traditional Nigerian dance with British contemporary dance. The company has consistently pushed forward the frontiers of African performance through an array of activities, ranging from school workshops; youth dance projects, and intensive training for professionals, to innovative new full-length productions.
As a choreographer, performer, teacher and academic, Peter’s commitment to the field of African performance arts has also involved research conducted through the Universities of London, California, Ghana and Ahmadu Bello University.
