Profile Information

What I do:
Isaac Blake - Director - Romani Cultural & Arts Company, Cardiff
A little more about me:
Born a Romani Gypsy, Isaac Blake is a professional choreographer and Artistic Director of the Romani Cultural and Arts Company, which is currently funded by the BBC Children in Need, Big Lottery, Cardiff City Council and Newport City Council. In 2000 he received a scholarship to attend a 3 year undergraduate Dance Theatre Course at Laban in London. While at LABAN, Isaac worked with numerous artists and companies including Adventures in Motions Pictures (AMP), DV8 and Rambert.

Since graduating from LABAN, Isaac has furthered his studies in New York and has choreographed performances at the Wales Millennium Centre and the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.

Utilising the skills as an Artistic Director Isaac Blake has raised the necessary funds to take arts development onto both Gypsy / Traveller sites and gadjo (non-Gypsy) communities across Wales. This project is close to his heart knowing how artistically barren these sites can be. But using arts Isaac has found a way to engage with children and young people.
Location:
Wales
Projects I’m working on:
The Romani Cultural and Arts Company has instigated a wide variety of exciting and innovative projects for both the Gypsy, Roma & Traveller community and the Gorjer (non-Traveller) community.

All of our projects are designed to enhance awareness and improve cultural understanding through the Arts.

We exist to ensure that Gypsy, Roma & Traveller communities, their children and young people live in a more open, tolerant society where they are accepted. We believe that the people best-placed to affect change for Gypsies, Roma & Travellers are Gypsies, Roma & Travellers. We are 100% Gypsy, Roma…
