Watch Out, a duet that defiantly challenges homophobia and transphobia. The performance reclaims dancehall and celebrates vogue culture surrounded by the bittersweet scent of oranges.

“We’re shape-shifting in a bid to fit in: to be black enough, straight enough, Jamaican enough…”

Performed by Rachael Young and Marikiscrycrycry, this exhilarating performance is a mash-up of remembrance and re-invention for queer Caribbean culture.

This work includes loud music and partial nudity.

Malik Nashad Sharpe AKA Marikiscrycrycry

Malik Nashad Sharpe is a choreographer, dancer, and movement director whose work looks at the production of ontology, affect, and subjectivity from the perspective of marginalisation. Often working with the undercurrent, underneath, subversive, and ulterior aspects of what it means to be both a human, and dehumanised, their work has often topically explored themes around sexual assault, melancholia and melancholic subjectivity, nationalism, authoritarianism, the advent of the spectacle of Black death, solidarities across borders and identities and the protestation in joyousness.
