Behind the Curtain
Indicoe is a website made by artists for artists to provide tips, resources, and inspiration for independent artists in different disciplines around the world. We focus in particular on collaboration in the arts and the relationships that help bring people's passion projects to life.
The collaborations we admire most are those characterized by openness, communication, respect, professionalism, and trust. Here, you can find information on how to create such collaborations, how to navigate working relationships, the artistic process, and information about working in the arts in general.
We also feature interviews with artists from multiple disciplines around the world, discussing their careers and experiences in their fields. With these resources and inspiration, we hope to create a community of independent artists and provide a place to explore, ask questions, and connect with others.
Cast and Crew
Kemi Adegoroye (Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer)
Kemi is a singer, actor, producer, and all-around storyteller. She has a long history of performing, from plays and musicals to concerts and cabarets, and has musical experience in a variety of genres, including jazz, classical, musical theatre, pop, and soul. In the past, she has produced, assistant directed, and performed for the stage, produced a church benefit concert, performed as a featured soloist in a choir that went on two European tours, and released a debut Christmas jazz album, Coming Home for Christmas, with 13 Roses Productions, a boutique production company she founded that celebrates and supports passion projects. She has continued to perform internationally, most recently in Nigeria and France, and to produce passion projects such as Summer Sessions, a music series of covers either recorded or released during the summer that feature new arrangements of her favorite songs. You can learn more about her passion projects at www.13rosesproductions.com.
Claire Ryberg (CO-FOUNDER & Chief Technology Officer)
Claire was handed a mic and asked to sing on stage exactly once in her life, and she promptly handed it back and left to join the tech crew. She much prefers being a part of the “production” side of putting on a production, be that building sets, booking venues, making posters, or any of those details that have to be taken care of before a performer can ever step on stage. She also has a passion for dance, particularly salsa and zouk, and has directed at least four shows for local salsa dancers. Recently, she has been a dancer in several performance teams, performing at some of the largest Latin dance festivals on the East Coast, such as the DC Bachata Congress and the New York City Zouk Festival. Her day job is as a software engineer, which is effectively the same thing as being on a tech crew (pun intended), but for the non-stage world. She loves it for many of the same reasons.
