Rachael Young created and performed with Dwayne Antony (UK/JM)
OUT is all about the bloody effort it takes to fit in. In this case: to be black enough, straight enough, Jamaican enough... In their intelligent performance Rachael Young and dancer Dwayne Antony not only attack the homophobia and transphobia prevalent in their Caribbean communities in London. OUT also reclaims dancehall and celebrates queerness amongst the bittersweet scent of oranges. A magnificent, euphoric and painful mash-up of remembrance and reinvention; a defiant act of self-expression featuring twerking, silence, repetition and voices, and: exceptional dance. Say “hallelujah” – (n)ever again.
Duration: 55 min
