about:

Last Yearz Interesting Negro makes dance performances, they think that dancing can be a radical social proposition, and are interested in it as something that everybody does in their own particular way – the criteria that make something a dance are totally specific in each case and for each person, like an uncapturable aesthetic/spiritual/physical/social/internal thing that is expressive but you couldn’t say of what exactly. the information about histories and environments that bodies carry she sees as content that has the potential for talking about the world and its fuckery, or building temporary ways of being otherwise.

their choreographic interest is in framing, how to frame a body to reveal or provoke certain questions and build an atmospheric response to that. they are more concerned with dancing as a state that provokes or focuses the dancer. they thinks about the seduction of raving, trance, meditation, riding things…

born and based in london, they feel totally overstimulated most of the time, and wonder what can be done with what is t/here now. their practice looks to disengage with the ideas of improvement and betterment and progress that drive neoliberal capitalism, with cultural systems of value that direct and inform style and in which they find no interest or agreement. they are interested in surfaces, structures and the space/tension between things

on going collaborations are Project O with Alexandrina Hemsley, immigrants and animals with Mira Kautto (currently defunct), Synchronous Practice with Lucy Suggate, work with Fernanda Munoz-Newsome, HOTLINE conversation event with Sara Sassanelli and GUSH a semi-regular low-key DIY art night event.
