O is me, O is you, O is us. O neutralizes everything, not just your gender. O is the gender neutral pronoun in Turkish. O needs no beginning or end.
The performance is a concert, lecture performance, and party all at once. It centers Anthony's personal and artistic journey as a queer, non-binary person of color through their childhood and present and dives into memories of the queer idol Zeki Müren. Project O celebrates the genderless third person pronoun O.
