Centre Stage: October 2020 (2)

12 Oct 2020

This month for our Centre Stage feature, we are celebrating Black History Month! As part of our ‘I Move’ campaign this summer, we reached out to those working and practicing within the field of Dance of the African Diaspora and asked them to share with us why DAD is important to them, the challenges that they are facing at the moment and their hopes for the future.

In this second installment, we talk to Lola Adodo. Lola, who is based in Birmingham, is the creative director of New Dance Scopes. She says: “Dance is a unique universal language and can be used to reveal your authentic self. The fluidity, the sharpness, the tenderness, the questioning, the answer! It’s that freedom of being able to abandon yourself, where you want to go, and how deep you want to go, for me, is priceless!”
