"Revue" is a choreographed, repeated routine performed naked, for 24 hours set to Cab Calloway’s popular cotton club track, ‘Pickin’ Up The Cabbage’.
"Revue" will be filtered digitally through institutions in cities throughout the world where Josephine Baker performed, and then back into the public domain. The performance is intent on reimagining the representation of black bodies, with an emphasis on protection, care, positioning and preservation.
