Rachael Young | OUT - The Eclipse Award, summer 2019

Supported by The Eclipse Award

This show contains strong language/swearing, loud music, haze, flashing lights and citrus fruit.

Performed with marikiscrycrycry. Originally created and performed with Dwayne Antony.

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.

Tues 13 – Sun 25 Aug (no show on 19 Aug). Book tickets here.
