Fresh from making new work at Sadler’s Wells and The Place, London artist Isaac Ouro-Gnao tackles what it means to be black and British within the troubled turbulence of the 21st century.

An Oreo is a person of mixed-black heritage: black on the outside but white on the inside.

Is it an insult, a compliment or just an honest observation? That depends on who’s doing the talking – and who’s doing the listening.

Rooted in both hip hop dance culture and contemporary art, The Oreo Complex is a deeply personal exploration of racial identity in a society not yet at ease with everyone who lives within it.



Suitable for ages 16+

The R&D of The Oreo Complex was commissioned & supported by Artists4Artists and Redbridge Drama Centre.
