Description

Performed with marikiscrycrycry, originally created/performed with Dwayne Antony, Out is about shapeshifting in a bid to fit in; to be black enough, straight enough, Jamaican enough... Challenging homophobia and transphobia within our communities, Out is a conversation between two bodies; a live art/dance performance, 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.

This show is incredible. I saw last week and was absolutely blown away. My favourite show of the fringe 2019. You'd be hard pushed to find an artist with more presence and talent than Rachael. I'd reccomend to anyone.

The Stage [paywall] (4/5 stars) 80 days ago

The audience files in to the sight of two dancers lost in a dancehall haze. Dressed in black fishnets, sunglasses and tiny shorts, Rachael Young and marikiscrycrycry shake, twerk and wind in endless, sensual shapes. They shimmer with sweat under Nao Nagai’s concentrated orange beams. Their dancing is energetic, their...

In all the years I have attended the Fringe, never have I been warned about the loudness of a show, before it’s begun; yet soon this warning makes perfect sense.As soon as the doors open, the infectious roar of Bashment Jamaican music fills the space. Rac...

Fest (4/5 stars) 87 days ago

On the heels of Nightclubbing, a solo with live music that was the multi-disciplinary, intersectional British artist Rachael Young's first stab at this year's Fringe, comes this equally striking, sweaty and orange-scented duet with fellow performer Marikiscrycrycry. Claiming a space that initially features flashing coloured lights and dry ice, and...

Exeunt 89 days ago

The room shimmers with sweat, haze, and citrus. Rachael Young and marikiscrycrycry’s bodies shift and sway, skin glossy and shining under Nao Nagai’s hot pink lights. Let me tell you a secret. There is a room throbbing with electricity in Summerhall Old Lab at 15:45 every day. OUT, originally performed...
