Last Yearz Interesting Negro is the solo project of Jamila Johnson-Small, who makes work with 'in-between spaces' — things that exist within cracks in time/memory/attention. Her work is based around syncopation, trance states, internal narratives, electronic music and a love of dancing on the spot.

In i ride in colour and soft focus, no longer anywhere, she examines the body as oracle, a trance, a rhythmic interface, an atmosphere, a landscape with the texture of her current mental state. The dance is informed by everything and everyone she has ever encountered, seen, heard, felt or been beside that has become part of her, as she tries to identify her own voice.

The choreography prioritises noise over silence, now over yesterday and pleasure over doing it right — a meditation on osmosis and internalisation, the responsibilities of blackness and queerness, the feeling of being possessed by other people’s fantasies — and the fear that her own would just be too rude.

Presented by Tramway in association with Take Me Somewhere.

Originally commissioned by Fierce Festival and The Marlborough Pub and Theatre, with funding from Arts Council England.
