Ep.11: Sport and Revolution, Four Tet, The Sea
We cover SPORT AND REVOLUTION exploring its power to drive social change. We speak to Women’s NBA player, Kelsey Bone, who has been using her platform to protest social injustice in America, even before Colin Kaepernick sparked the ‘take a knee’ movement. Writer and journalist, Musa Okwonga, has penned an essay for Stance, about South Africa and the role that sport played in unifying the nation post-apartheid. We also go on a run with Goodgym - Ivo Gormley’s thriving social enterprise that combines sport and community - driving social change at a local level.
We profile FOUR TET (aka Kieran Hebden), exclusively for Stance, in his first and only interview about his latest album, New Energy. He discusses how current political events have influenced the making of the record, and reflects on some of his formative musical moments.
And we discuss the SEA with Kwame Kwei-Armah OBE (just announced as Young Vic Theatre’s new Artistic Director) and Bafta-nominated actor, Nikki Amuka-Bird, who tell us about their adaptation of Ibsen classic, Lady From The Sea, for the stage in London. Lastly, we go surfing and discuss the relationship between race and the sea with Brown Girl Surf in California.
