In 2014 Project O (Alexandrina Hemsley and Jamila Johnson-Small) began working with Charlotte Cooper and Kay Hyatt on a show called SWAGGA. The work is rooted in dance and draws on other performance traditions, including a live soundtrack by Trash Kit and original compositions by Verity Susman. This collaboration was remarkable because it featured untrained dancers with the kinds of political bodies – fat, queer, older – that are rarely treated as creative, expressive or worthy choreographic subjects. Over two years SWAGGA was refined and performed for audiences around the country. Katarzyna Perlak documented the process and in 2016 created SWAGGA: A Study On Camera, a creative response to the live performance. The result is an extravaganza of mess, antisocial emotions and intersectional feminist sensibility.
SWAGGA: A Study On Camera was first screened by the Live Art Development Agency in 2018 as part of the LADA Screens programme, a series of online screenings of seminal performance documentation, works to camera, short videos, films and archival footage.
