A KHOISAN WOMAN 

Commissioned by BBC Radio 3

Recorded live at Summerhall as part of Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2019.

Saartjie Baartman is the proud embodiment of the Khoisan women of South Africa. But in London 1810, she is the Hottentot Venus, a freak of race and sexuality on display for the audiences' amusement. Saartjie stands as the epitome of colonial exploitation, ridicule and commodification of black women.
