In front of Block 43 Malan Road

Ocean Blue(s)
is a cross-disciplinary performance developed by artists from Mexico and the Caribbean diaspora that continues to evolve as it includes new collaborators around the world. Based on first-hand experiences, research, and ancient wisdom, it charts the physical and emotional relationship maintained with the ocean and the urgent need for collective transformation. The resulting work combines dance, spoken word, stilt dancing, costuming, and music to create a unique form of storied performance that will unfold during CITIES FOR PEOPLE: as a series comprised of conversation, knowledge exchange platform, and workshop, culminating in a public performance.

Ocean Blue(s) was first presented as What-Lives-Beneath in 2016 for TBA21 The Current, The Kula Ring convening in Jamaica.

Brooklyn Jumbies collaborators for the Singapore presentation include: Najja Codrington; Keil Alibocas; Jabari Rollocks; and Kyle Lambert.
