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

    Over the course of 2023 Out of the Blue will continue to offer opportunities for artists and members of the community to learn, participate and earn income.

    We use the space we have developed in 6 buildings in Edinburgh for studios, workshops, classes, projects, exhibitions, social enterprises, events, clubs, music making, markets, a cafe and more.

    Our all year round activity helps create the culture of the city, supporting the local economy and having positive social impact for the thousands of individuals and organisations we work with.

    We would humbly accept a financial donation, however small, in support of our work.
