About the artist
Ahilan Ratnamohan is a performance-maker working with unconventional forms and performers to create cross-disciplinary pieces. He is inspired by sport, film and linguistics.
In his early twenties Ahil attempted to make a career as a professional footballer spending time in the Netherlands, Germany and Sweden. He began concentrating on contemporary performance in 2007, collaborating with a range of companies in Sydney, most extensively with Urban Theatre Projects, Branch Nebula and Martin del Amo.
Since 2012 he has been based in Antwerp, where he began to lead his own projects. In this period his work has toured throughout Europe and Australia; his work with a group of West African footballers on Michael Essien I want to play as you… has led to the formation of a new performance troupe, the ‘Star Boys Collective’. Ahil is a resident artist at Monty Kultuurfaktorij in Antwerp.
