Monuments of Fem: Hottentot Venus to C**t – Alexandria Davis

May 4 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

£10.00

This roundtable discussion will explore the history and evolution of movement and performance as a
sketch of gender, identity, and orientation. It will evolve into an interactive forum that explores the effort
and shape of the body to communicate one’s embodied & “divine feminine energy.”; It will approach the
C-word through the LGBTQ+ ballroom perspective more universally known for its positive and negative
connotations, much like the Hottentot Venus reference in place of Sara Baartman/Saartje.

Dancer, Actress, Teaching Artist, Choreographer, and Screendance maker Alexandria Davis holds an
MFA in dance choreography from the University of Michigan. A Black American Southern Belle gone
rogue, raptured in protest and reappropriation, Alexandria Davis creates dangerous dances, often using
choreography as a device to instigate and advocate.
