Akuchu holds an MFA in Theatre from the University of Montana and a BA in Theatre from Georgia Southern University.
Akuchu’s creative and academic interests intersect with his focus on performance as research. His ever-evolving work builds off hip-hop and street dance and interprets them as an approach to creating physical. He also specializes in improvisation as performance. He is particularly interested in how the performance of hip-hop exists as embodied/oral history, cultural expression, and protest.
Akuchu has had choreography presented at the Kennedy Center and featured for TEDx Providence.
