lastyearzinterestingnegroisdead (previously Last Yearz Interesting Negro) lives and works in London, UK. lastyearzinterestingnegroisdead’s practice is always relational, moving across spaces, contexts, roles and collaborations. They work with dramatic compositions of sculpture, electronic music, overwhelm, syncopation, internal narratives, texture, trance states, the public and dance, to build atmospheric landscapes through the live unfolding of the tensions between things that produce meaning. The resultant choreographies engage with questions of entanglement, alienation and sensation. lastyearzinterestingnegroisdead is the moniker of Jamila Johnson-Small, 2019/20 Torchlight Artist at Siobhan Davies Dance, UK. Recent performances include Silencio, France (2019); Transmediale, Germany (2019); Palais de Tokyo, France (2018); and Institute of Contemporary Arts, UK (2018).
