The Colour White is an energetic, acrobatic and irreverent physical circus/ contemporary dance performance that explores what it means to be ‘beautiful’.
The Colour White looks at recent media attention given to young non-Caucasian people apparently attempting to look more ‘Western’ by physically altering their bodies and asks, “Is this phenomenon a product of a media over saturated with images that depict Whiteness as beautiful; or an inherently racist suggestion?”
Based on a script by Michelle Lee, design by Tanja Beer, original concept and direction by Gorkem Acaroglu
