Rachael Young & Dwayne Antony
Friday 14 October
Rich Mix

A collaboration between theatre maker and writer; Rachael Young and choreographer and dance artist; Dwayne Antony.

“We are two artists of colour from Jamaican heritage. We decided to collaborate to create a space to recall and examine our own experiences of the stigmas associated to queerness and gender conformity within the black community.

The piece examines and challenges ideas that we have been indoctrinated with throughout our Caribbean upbringings, exploring the sense of shame that has felt ever present. It comments on the tightrope we have to tread and unpacks the multitude of pressures and repressions surrounding the experience of upholding a family’s social standing” – Rachael and Dwayne
