‘Provocative and witty’
Get the Chance
Jezebel refuses to be defined by other people.
In a world where stereotypes are formed in a vacuum and individuals are defined by others, are we able to deconstruct the controversial stereotypes associated with the black hip hop honey? Can 90s video girls redefine themselves?
Jezebel is a dance performance inspired by female models who appeared in late 90s hip hop music videos. Images in the mass media often projected females in a hyper-sensualized way, reinforcing stereotypes associated with black / dark / coloured women. Join Jezebel as she navigates the landscape of hip hop culture, searching for ways to reclaim her own image.
“Cherish Menzo is a rock-solid, captivating performer… a force to be reckoned with, not only as a dancer, but also as a brave maker of her own work.” Movement Exposed
