Project O (the collaborative supernova between Alexandrina Hemsley and Jamila Johnson-Small) have made work since 2011 that takes the position of their bodies within systems as starting points for unfolding conversations and engagements with live dance practice. Their work intends to continually address, re-evaluate, intervene, comment upon, resist and celebrate. Project O experiment with alternative ways their bodies can be present and visible (on stage or off), and ways that they can be present and visible in their bodies to and for themselves. Their work takes different forms including a book, a school, video work, interventions, and live shows.
