Local Oxford performance poet D-Empress Dianne Regisford will present a performance installation piece entitled ‘Hersto-Rhetoric? Na so today!!!’. The performance installation, which incorporates a series of seven sculptures, invites critical explorations of the notion of ‘la femme libre’ (the liberated woman) from an African feminist perspective. The works are inspired by what D-Empress describes as a ten-year initiation into the teachings and practice of the ancient West African Mandika badjenne tradition. The event will be chaired by Erica Lombard.
