Ray Young: OUT

The Stage ★★★★
The Scotsman ★★★★
Broadway Baby ★★★★
Ed Fest Magazine ★★★★
Everything Theatre ★★★★

Defiantly challenging homophobia and transphobia across our communities, OUT is a duet, a conversation between two bodies, 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.
