The Dragon Sisters
Issa & Odessa Dragon are an award-winning multi hyphenated performance art duo based in Brooklyn. This sisterhood and collaboration began while Issa and Odessa were studying at the Conservatory at Purchase College (where they are now adjunct professors). Together they have presented work at Lincoln Center, Brooklyn Museum, NYU Tisch, Carnegie Museum of Art, Tribeca Performing Arts Center, Georges Berges Gallery, Jacobs Pillow and Gibney Dance. A Dragon Sisters experience is equal parts dynamic synchronous movement, lyric incantations, skin, glitter, and hip-hop vibrations that reach audiences in their viscera. Their music and performances pay homage to their ancestry and black & brown queer futurity. Their music is a hypnotic concoction of southern grit with a Bronx pulse. Their style interprets femininity and power to promote possibility and love.
