Ray Young - OUT

An award-winning duet that defiantly challenges homophobia and transphobia.

Defiantly challenging homophobia and transphobia across our communities, OUT is a duet – a conversation between two bodies, which bravely carves out a new kind of space, reclaiming Dancehall and celebrating queerness amongst the bittersweet scent of oranges.

Winner of the 2017 South East Dance A Place to Dance Brighton Fringe Award and nominated for the 2017 Total Theatre & The Place Award for Dance.

An interdisciplinary performance inspired by ongoing global struggles for LGBTQIA+ rights, OUT is a defiant challenge to the status quo. Bravely embracing personal, political and cultural dissonance, this work smashes through our violent colonial histories to reimagine, reclaim and celebrate our delicious queer future.
