This week on the podcast I talk to dancer and writer Isaac Ouro-Gnao. We discuss the shenanigans of the street dance battle and competition scene, the way West African dance has allowed him to explore identity and heritage, how house dance has given him more freedom, and how he developed a physical practice to support these styles. We ponder how every dancer is motivated to grow in different ways and how if we accept and utilise what actually drives us, we will accelerate our growth.
In addition to being an incredible dancer, Isaac is so cerebral and well-thought in the way he approaches his practice and I feel I have new ideas to chew on every time we speak. Always a pleasure, I hope you enjoy this one.
