"For Gowie the Deceitful Fellow": Performance by Oceana James at the Royal Danish Library 30/11 at 8 pm.

"For Gowie the Deceitful Fellow": Performance by Oceana James at the Royal Danish Library 30/11 at 8 pm.

Oceana James' "For Gowie the Deceitful Fellow" will be performed at the Queen's Hall at the Royal Danish Library on November 30 at 8 pm (running time: ca. 1 hour).

Oceana James' performance "For Gowie the Deceitful Fellow" is a theatrical experiment that examines the institutional racism of our societies. It is the intersection & cosmic dialogue of a haunted Caribbean woman and a young man claiming his identity. It looks at slavery and its role in who we all are—the oppressed & the oppressor, the victim & the victor. Finally, it is an explanation of personal growth.
The piece combines Butoh movement, projections, sound & light to tell a deeply personal story.

Oceana James (USVI) is a New York City based performance artist, theater actor, writer and dancer. Her work re-tells & re-imagines her Caribbean roots & American experiences. It comments on the socio-political, cultural & economic realities of people of African descent. She deconstructs language & uses her Caribbean ‘‘Nation Language’’ to further explore the mythologies that she grew up hearing.
Oceana James has MFA in theatre from Sarah Lawrence college and has most recently completed a writing intensive at the Obie-Award winning JACK in Brooklyn.
