#NEGROPHOBIA

SAT 18.03 9PM (70 MINS) £10/£7 CONC AGE 14+

#negrophobia examines the erotic fear associated with the black body. Jaamil Olawale Kosoko juxtaposes interior and exterior landscapes to expose a confessional identity-mashup where visual and performance aesthetics collide in a face-off of self-revelation, ecstatic theatricality, and discomfort. Revealing contradictory feelings of desire and fear, #negrophobia references issues related to grief, misogyny, trans identity, and Black patriarchal constructs of masculinity housed within the chaotic frame of a body and mind on the verge of psychosomatic collapse.

Post-show discussion with Prof. Thomas F. DeFrantz of Duke University, US, will follow the show reflecting on the performance of black identity and masculinity.
