PROJECT O

| £11.75

Watch two women dance their way through a labyrinth of histories, fantasies and assumptions.

A physical unfolding and enactment of difference, O winds itself right through the politics of identity and back out the other side.

Drawn from the dancers’ own experiences, conversations and reflections, it is a duet about being black, mixed race and female that addresses both uncomfortable everyday occurrences and the deep-seated bedrock of racism and sexism in the UK.

About Africa Utopia

In 2012 Southbank Centre launched Africa Utopia, a festival dedicated to bringing art and ideas from Africa and the African diaspora to audiences in the UK. We ask what the West can learn from this rapidly changing continent.

The festival’s first four years have featured the award-winning Senegalese musician and human-rights activist Baaba Maal, afrobeat legend Tony Allen, former First Lady of Somaliland and hospital founder Edna Adan, Kenyan creative collective The Nest, Township Tech originator Spoek Mathambo, ‘godfather of Ethiopian jazz’ Mulatu Astatke and the Kinshasa Symphony orchestra.
