Isaiah Esquire & Johnny Nuriel
Isaiah Esquire is the producer and headliner of the hit bi monthly show BOYEURISM at Star Theater. Isaiah as a dancer/performer has graced many stages throughout the United States and as far as Jamaica and Finland. This exciting entertainer has a unique performance style that is intensely emotive, athletic, and explosive incorporating elements of dance, burlesque, drag, and contortion into his stage performance. Often referred to as a “Glamazon” his tall statuesque physique alone demands attention. That, however is certainly not the only reason why Isaiah Esquire is a force promised to entrance you.
John-Nuriel Yeshua Vissell (Johnny Nuriel) fuses burlesque, belly dance, aerial, and LED together to create unique and vibrant performances, sometimes uniting all four in a single act.
Johnny first branched into the performing arts when he began experimenting with flow arts such as juggling, hoop, poi, and staff at the age of 12. He was soon performing with LED and rapidly progressed to fire dance. Johnny studied aerial silks, trapeze, and lyra in 2012 at Kalani on the Big Island of Hawaii. Most recently Johnny has begun performing aerial chains.
ABOUT PRIDE NORTHWEST
Pride celebrations have been held in Portland since the 1970′s. In 1994, the original board of directors of Pride Northwest created a 501(c)3 organization and held their first meeting. Since that time, the board and the event has grown considerably. Today, Pride Northwest is made up of a dynamic group of individuals from many different backgrounds who are dedicated to providing a venue for the queer community to gather and celebrate. The mission of Pride Northwest, Inc. is to encourage and celebrate the positive diversity of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer communities, and to assist in the education of all people through the development of activities that showcase the history, accomplishments, and talents of these communities.
