Tegan Peacock is a performance artist and creator. Through her work she aims to rethink, redefine and redirect the creation of art and believes in using art as a tool to address accessibility and create dialogue, in order to bring about social change.

She founded, performed and choreographed for ReRouted Dance Theatre. Through the company’s collaborative design, she has worked with artists from different artistic genres, creating works that have been presented at festivals, both nationally and internationally.

As an independent artist, Tegan has been included in residency programmes that have allowed her to work and learn from diverse artists, including Boyzie Cekwana, Desire Davids and Faustin Linyekula.

In 2019, Tegan conceptualised and actualised the first ReRouting Arts Festival. The festival is site-specific in nature and presents multidisciplinary content in diverse public spaces. The city of Pietermartizburg becomes an artistic playground for its artists and community.
