In this newest edition of the short-film, ‘The Performers’, for GQ and Gucci, created as a collaboration between Janizca Bravo and Jeremy O. Harris, we see Harris strolling around Berlin wearing pieces from Gucci’s latest men’s collection and executing the humorous and politically charged script the pair co-wrote. We are told how Harris’ work is driven by a desire to expand cultural representations and inclusivity in the world of theatre. With a soundtrack by Moses and images by David Abrahams to go with the film, Harris adds how Berlin was the understandable choice of location; “Berlin has a recognition of responsibility of a dark past, and a safeguarding of progressivism and inclusion.”.
