Dunham Hall Theater | 6 Hairpin Dr. | Edwardsville, IL 62025 | 618-650-2774
In 1810, Saartjie Baartman, a member of the Khoi-San peoples of South Africa, was transported to London and Paris, where she was dubbed The Hottentot Venus, and put on public display in near nude conditions. Her act generated a thriving business. These facts provide Parks with the opportunity to fashion a drama that concerns itself less with history than with the quirkiness of society. Venus follows Baartmans experience in Europe - from her departure from Africa to her untimely death in Paris - and finds a most unusual love story between her and her sponsor, the Baron Docteur. http://www.siue.edu/artsandsciences/theater/Season14-15.shtml
