We were super happy to have a great, in-depth chat with Nik aka LCD aka Pingo aka Elsie Dee. A true pioneer of isolation and illusion based contact. He offered some fantastic insight into his role and his experiences during a major shift in the possible definition of contact, plus he’s really lovely.
In our current spirit of trying to do things until they work, it only took us two attempts to get this going (we’re improving) so if you don’t want to hear Dawn and Briney waffling too much you can skip to 13:00 to hear our interview with Nik in the first of our ‘Interesting Discussions With Interesting People’ or IDWIP.
Nik was kind enough to join us after driving from one end of England to the other, then back again, so he wanted to pass on a couple of extra little notes that he didn’t get round to mentioning in the discussion:
“I didn’t mention how excellent Ryan Mellors was in pushing the Iso style out to the community after he’d met Matt Hennem. He’s equally responsible for making this style popular as Matt and I were, if not slightly more so.
I also didn’t give Ed Adams enough props for pushing the boundaries regarding what can be achieved/bringing Aragorn’s dance techniques into contact/breaking down techniques into the fundamental basics/teaching really well/everything else he has done for the community.”
Finally because Nik was too polite/British to mention it, keep an eye on his lovely acrylic prop-shop and expect new and exciting things coming soon
