A Contemporary Struggle is a collection of texts and images that respond to the dance duet O.
Choreographed by Hemsley & Johnson-Small, O is a dance that works to resist the objectifying tendencies of performer/spectator relationships, the gaze on the female body and reductive notions of race.
A Contemporary Struggle elaborates on these themes: examining discourses around race and female sexuality. Both O and A Contemporary Struggle are part of Hemsley & Johnson-Small's ongoing collaboration, Project O.Contributors: Hrafnhildur Benediktsdóttir, Dr. Chamion Caballero, Phoebe Collings-James, Janine Harrington, Hamish Macpherson, Hannah Newell, Hetain Patel, Katarzyna Perlak, Shane Solanki And Else Tunemyr.
