Biting satire ✔
Laugh-out-loud comedy ✔
Deeply challenging ✔
Very uncomfortable ✔
Head-scratchingly confusing ✔ 'AN OCTOROON' - the absolutely brilliant new production by @qld_theatre as part of @brisbanefestival. I'm no theatre expert, but I know what I like - and I loved this!! Still trying to unpack a lot of what happened in the play. Totally worth seeing - do yourself a favour!

Thanks to @hesaysshesaysbrisbane for the +1, & @kathrose for her invitation... 💗💗💗 #kathrosearmy #anoctoroon #qldtheatre #brisbane #visitbrisbane #brisfest #whatsoninbrisbane #brisbanelife #visitsouthbank #queenslandtheatre #octoroon

What a shot! By the master Rob Maccoll!! CHOOKAS to the cast, creatives and crew for the official opening night of the Australia premiere season of AN OCTOROON. 
This is a play that confronts the tough stuff – race, equality, slaves, relationships, #blackface and #whiteface. It's clever and current, it'll make you squirm and it'll make you laugh. 
Bravo Queensland Theatre for another challenging, bang-on-trend show that parallels our world, right now.

In the eighteenth century, Haiti developed elaborate tables of genetic descent, dividing mulattos into over a several shades of black and white. 
Invented by colonialist Moreau, These ranged from the Sacatra which were seven-eighths black, to the several varieties of Sangmeles, which are only one-sixteenth black. Technically, a mulatto is someone who is half black and half white.

With his system of classification, Moreau attached physical, moral and intellectual attributes to each of the nine degrees of shading and claimed that the varying presence of black was responsible for distinctive traits.

The system ranged from pure Noir through Sacatra, Griffe, Marabou, Mulatre, Mamelouque, Quarteronnee and Sang-Melee to Blanche.

Some of the categories, such as Marabou and Griffe, borrow from mythology and refer to beasts.

In response to the gradation, Haitian historian Colin Dayan notedthat Moreau "demonstrates to what lengths the imagination can go if driven by racial prejudice". Photos by Leah Gordon

"Octoroon" This play right here - is a Must see. It's one of the best off broadway Dramady's I've ever seen. It's immersive, intense, innovative, involved and comical. #openingnight #octoroon

Just returned from the Shaw Festival and was fortunate enough to see Dracula and Octoroon. I specifically chose these plays because for the first time I saw diversity within the casts. Props to the new creative director, Tim Carroll for selecting black actors to play leading roles. Mr. Caroll said "This company is a hotbed of ideas and creativity, and I want to share that with you in every way imaginable." These plays are brilliant and if you get the opportunity, please go and support our actors.

After his father died, Richard Johnson inherited #JuliaChinn, an #octoroon #slave (one-eighth #African, seven-eighths #European in ancestry).Johnson began a long-term relationship with her and treated her as his common-law #wife. They were #prohibited from marrying because she was a slave.When Johnson was away from his #Kentucky #plantation, he authorized Chinn to manage his business #affairs.She died in an epidemic of #cholera in the summer of 1833, to Johnson's great grief.

Johnson and Chinn had two daughters, Adaline (or Adeline) Chinn Johnson and Imogene Chinn Johnson, whom he acknowledged and gave his surname. He provided for their education.Both daughters married white men. Johnson gave them large farms as dowries from his own holdings.

🖼 The Octoroon #Octoroon
🗓 1925 - Huile sur toile
🖌 Archibald J. Motley, Jr (1891-1981)
📍 Michael Rosenfeld Gallery LLC, New York, NY

L'octavon ["Octoroon"] désigne l'individu dont un parent, au huitième degré, est noir. Dans l'Amérique ségrégationniste, "une seule goutte de sang noir" suffisait pour être considéré comme tel.
Ce portrait, genre dans lequel Motley excella, représente une jeune femme distinguée, type même de l'élite bourgeoise de la Harlem Renaissance, et dont la pigmentation pouvait aisément la faire passer pour Blanche. Retournement ironique des si nombreuses caricatures d'Africains-Américains vendues sous forme de bibelots: la figurine représentée à droite semble bien être la caricature... d'un Blanc.
