House of Ghetto team up with artist Gemma Parker to look at the fetishisation of the black female body, from the hidden history of the pin up girl to the legacy of racial stereotypes still found in modern day life.
Taking inspiration from the traditional burlesque fan dance with a House of Ghetto twist, this dance and spoken word performance is political with some added phunk!
Stick around after each performance for an informal discussion with the artists.
“A Sunday afternoon in the Ground Floor Gallery of HOME seems like an unlikely place to stage a burlesque/vogue… A seven-minute performance that could be unpacked for hours.” – The Manchester Review
“Moving and intimate… Impactful and powerful… At 10 minutes long, this piece was a refreshing and challenging experience and well worth a watch if you get a chance… I’d certainly be interested in seeing where it ends up in the future.” – LGBTQ Arts
