Oreo, coconut, Bounty Bar

About this event

A semi-autobiographical solo about being a successfully educated black woman within western society, Oreo interrogates racial micro-aggressions and their effect on mental health within private and public personas — focusing on public figures such as British MP Diane Abbott + Portuguese politician Joacine Katar Moreira.

Exploring the racial term ‘Oreo’ in relation to experiences of episodic racism within higher education and employment, Tania challenges the notion of whitening her physical and phenomenal self to achieve success in society.

Oreo developed from, and is inspired by, difficult conversations and the complexities of what it means to black in Great Britain. As a black EU national living in the UK, Tania uses Oreo to investigate the mechanisms of survival black women use to protect themselves and endure the current hostile times.

Content Warnings: includes an archive recording of a speech by Diane Abbott where she uses a term that may offend.

Features: live + recorded audio, spoken word, and choreographed movement.

Suiable for ages 16+
