Event

Venus
A young girl. An French doctor. A harsh, unforgiving city. Come one, come all and hear the tale of The Venus Hottentot, the beautiful African Dancing Princess. Star of the freak shows and medical wonder. In 1810, a young black woman named Saartje Baartman traveled from South Africa to England in search of fame and riches. She ended up notorious as the "Hottentot Venus," a sideshow novelty billed as having the "biggest bottom in the world." With a brilliant mix of vaudeville, spectacle and poetry, Pulitzer Prize-winner Suzan-Lori Parks' brilliant examination of race, history, and the colonization of imagination, Venus, invites you in to delve deeper into the story of this provocative figure in a masterpiece of unsettling drama. Step right up, folks. Don't be shy. An opportunity like this comes around once in a life-time.
