Favour Odusola (Proud African King) is a Nigerian Irish multidisciplinary artist based in Dublin Ireland and a professional member of Dance Ireland and Create Ireland. He has worked across several contexts from traditional dance & percussion to commercial work and contemporary theatre for over 15 years in Europe (Ireland and London), Africa (Ghana, South Africa, Nigeria), and UAE (Dubai). He is a face that portrays the average African dancer with the zeal to learn and explore. The main focus of his work is all about creating pieces speaking towards surrounding issues. Favour is very adventurous, looking for new ways to use dance as a tool to be of relevance, believing that dance is a tool for social integration, education, proper implementation, and love but only if used right.

He was one of the first two artists commissioned for “BENCH”,  a collaboration between Coisceim dance theatre and waterways Ireland.
