Ish Ait Hamou
Ish Ait Hamou (b. 1987) is known to the general public as a dancer, choreographer and jury member on ’So You Think You Can Dance’. His love of dance and choreography is more than matched by his love of words. Having written stories from an early age, he made his debut in 2014. He has also written and directed a short film. Ait Hamou sees it as his task to build bridges between divided communities and for this he was awarded the Prijs van de Gelijkheid, or the Equality Award, in 2016. His accessible style and topical stories appeal to a broad readership.
