OMOS (2022) celebrates contemporary Black performance and pays tribute to Black performers at the Scottish court in the sixteenth century, and connections to Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
The twenty-minute work is the first film work by cabaret artist Rhys Hollis, well known as an influential figure in London’s queer art scene. The film features a visual journey through a castle and a forest, created in collaboration with opera singer Andrea Baker, dancer Divine Tasinda, and pole performer Kheanna Walker.
