Project O

O
Monday 24th August – Friday 28th August 2015 – 12pm
A physical unfolding of a realisation of difference, O presents bodies as they negotiate histories, fantasies and assumptions in a 50-minute romp through politics of identity. Kinda like what happened when Yellowman met Angela Carter for a cup of tea in the jungle.

Refusing to be held down, Alexandrina and Jamila are outraged, joyous and simply hurt. This is a dance that reconsiders the dilemmas, assumptions and sexualisation that brown and female bodies can be subjected to. A physical unfolding of a realisation of difference.

‘Fucking badass. The treatment of the female body, the treatment of the black female body, the sexual objectification of women. O pulls at those threads until we feel, collectively, a bit dirty’ – Meghan Vaughn

O has been kindly supported by Arts Council England, Chisenhale Dance Space, The Yard Theatre and workspacebrussels
