THE EMANCIPATION OF MS. LOVELY
ON NOW AT SUMMERWORKS
"I'm ready to be in deep love with myself"
Interweaving the story of Sarah Baartman (The Venus Hottentot) as symbol for the historical image of black women’s sexuality, Lovely’s confusion, anger, cynicism and heartache resonate with Sarah’s experience, creating an echo effect. From the 21st century twerk to the “faux-cul” of the 19th century. We travel a musical landscape using movement, sound, dance and projection while reexamining our relationship with ourselves, our sex and the dark matter that binds us all. Lovely discovers that she has the power to break the cycle and become free, rejecting the image of herself that she’s been buying into, looking for self love and emancipation on her journey.
