OUT 2017

OUT 2017

Revisited & performed with marikiscrycrycry.
Originally created and performed with Dwayne Antony.

“a powerfully eloquent danced dialogue… performed with both calm reserve and concentrated intensity”
The Stage ★★★★

Winner of the 2017 South East Dance A Place to Dance Brighton Fringe Award and nominated for the 2017 Total Theatre & The Place Award for Dance. 

Defiantly challenging homophobia and transphobia, OUT is a duet – a conversation between two bodies, carving out a new kind of space, reclaiming Dancehall and celebrating Vogue culture amongst the bittersweet scent of oranges.

“We’re shape-shifting in a bid to fit in; to be black enough, straight enough, Jamaican enough…”  Embracing personal, political and cultural dissonance; this act of interdisciplinary self-expression smashes through normativity, summoning voices and re-enacting movements in an exhilarating mash-up of remembrance and re-invention.

OUT was created with kind support from Arts Council England, The Marlborough Theatre, The Yard Theatre, IBT, Leicester Curve, South East Dance and Greenwich University. It is part of Rachael Young’s extended research project: The Freedom Project.
Edinburgh Fringe run supported by The Eclipse Award.
