We are seeking two Black queer, trans+ or gender non-conforming dance performers of Caribbean heritage for a restaging of Ray Young’s award-winning work OUT for a UK tour in spring 2024. OUT is a duet, a love letter, an act of defiance that uses social dance and Black Caribbean culture to challenge homophobia and transphobia.

We are looking for:

  • Queer, trans+ or gender non-conforming Black performers of Caribbean heritage
  • We are aware of the different dance scenes and backgrounds people develop their skills within.
  • We welcome performers whose experience and ability has been developed through non-traditional training, as much as those who are professionally trained dancers
  • Being from a Dancehall and/or Vogue Femme, runway, waacking etc is a plus, and strong improvisation skills and performance experience are essential
