A FREAK SHOW FOR S.
With Annabel Guérédrat, choreographer & performer
The « Freak show for S. » is originally a solo created in March 2010 as a tribute to the Black Venus, Sarah Baartman.
The common thread is the Hottentot women exposed, naked like animals fair in Europe in the early nineteenth century.
This performance led me to reflect about two questions:
1. How does my dance become a theoretical and political practice of issues of Black Feminism, Gender and Post-Colonialism?
2. How has this performance contributed to destroy and rebuild my own identity?
