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

Dialogue Box
£10 | Free for Serendipity Connect Members

Book Ticket

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.
