Gardening in Stilettos
As a lover of learning and exploration, I couldn't resist going to check out this performance when a friend ask me to attend. Very interesting....
The Saartjie Project has garnered international attention for its boundary-stretching stage presentation that explores the mysticism, paradoxes and complexities surrounding the black female body.

Saartjie (pronounced Sar-kay) Baartman - was the South African woman paraded around Europe under the showname,"Hottentot Venus". She was caged to show off her large buttocks, dissected upon her death and placed in a museum. Founding Producer Jessica Solomon explains, "We are extremely excited about the production and are committed to using art as a catalyst of self-expression, self-definition and healing. This is not a performance to missed!"
