Aderemi-Ibitola art practices is a marrying of different artistic traditions and practices. She has a demonstrated history of working with underprivileged groups and contemporary social/ political issues. Her primary mode of creation is video and performance. In her theatrical work she focus on the practices of devised theatre, collaborative theatre making where traditional hierarchies of theatrical making are usurped in favour of a more democratic style, with a strong anchorage in the philosophy of Theatre of Development and informal citizenship. She believes in using all aspects of the theatre, including the development of a show, as a form of activism. She often works with those who are alien to the theatrical realm, and finds the democratic approach to devised theatre making and empowering tool for the citizens. In her performance, video and installation work she performs highly researched “visual treatise” by marrying desperate ideas together to suggest reasonings behind some of the issues that great effect the subordinate groups of society.
