i ride in colour and soft focus, no longer anywhere is a choreographic meditation on osmosis, internalisation and the feeling of being possessed by other people's fantasies: In loops of movements, words and sounds, trance-like dance sequences unfold to electronic music while the performer's body articulates as an ambivalent archive of all the things she has ever seen, heard, felt, touched or inherited.
Last Yearz Interesting Negro is the independent performance project of Jamila Johnson-Small working with dance, video, sculpture, text and electronic music, staging projects with a range of collaborators including Alexandrina Hemsley, Phoebe Collings-James and Fernanda Muñoz-Newsome.
