Project O is a collaboration between Alexandrina Hemsley and Jamila Johnson-Small. Both trained in contemporary dance, the understanding of the body as the site of politics is central to their work. It is a project that tries to talk about, and make visible, the awkward stuff of everyday oppression and to move on from this. For SWAGGA, Charlotte Cooper and Kay Hyatt join the project.

Swagga is a dance of dissent and gentle, raging empowerment performed by fat activists Dr Charlotte cooper and Kay Hyatt and choreographed/directed by Alexandrina Hemsley and Jamila Johnson-small.

Currently a work in progress, themes of permission and appropriation run through piece.
