The Scotsman (****)
OUT is about shape shifting in a bid to fit in; to be black enough, straight enough, Jamaican enough…
Challenging homophobia and transphobia within Caribbean communities, OUT is a conversation between two bodies, reclaiming dancehall and celebrating queerness amongst the bittersweet scent of oranges.
Embracing personal, political and cultural dissonance, this defiant act of self expression smashes through the silence, summoning voices and re-enacting movements in a chaotic mash-up of remembrance and reinvention.
