In case you’re unfamiliar, Izzy Odigie is responsible for some of the best choreography from your favorite African artists’ music videos. Dancer, Choreographer and now Film Star, Izzy has been putting in work over the past couple of years, dancing with and for major artists, touring across the world with her dance classes, and setting trends every time she drops a tutorial video.
Iziegbe is a self-titled project that speaks to who Izzy is as an individual, peer, and creative. A sample from the film first appeared as Wizkid’s official dance video for “Ginger” featuring Burna Boy, which has now racked up 1-million plus views on Youtube. The full-length film features 5-additional videos all titled after various flowers. Odigie speaks on her various moods throughout, connecting the visuals with their corresponding floral names. In its entirety, this piece presents both a visual and emotional experience with interpretive moves and unique sounds. Izzy dedicates this project to individuals who have had a significant influence on her career, i.e. the late Picture Kodak, whom the final visual in the film tributes.
