    SELDOM IS HEARD

    CA...
    ST OF CHARACTERS
    IVAN- 20's - 30's
    A strapping, young man, dressed in a faded buttoned up work shirt and jeans, wearing a kerchief that covers his hair. He totters unsteadily. We hope he won't tip over. Whatever happened to make him this way, there are no outward scars.

    HANNAH - 20's -30's
    Hannah is a plain looking woman, perhaps large-sized. She wears a buttoned up shirt, covering a tank top beneath it, and jeans. Hannah carries herself with a familiar caregiver's energy, tired but in a groove of well-practiced cheerfulness.

    MARILYN - 30's - 40's
    With one glance, you can tell she's one of those women who made sure her home was spotless before she left it this morning.
    Marilyn's hair is perfect and she sports a pink feminine suit with matching purse,fit for the many cosmetics it must contain. You just know her car is pink.

    SETTING:
    Two chairs signifying a front porch of a modest house in the suburbs.

    SYNOPSIS: Hannah has quite a bit on her plate nowadays. Her husband, Ivan, has returned from his tour of duty in Afghanistan with an I.E.D.- caused brain injury. The term "supporting our troops" seems to have a different meaning now that he's home. Ivan's noisy and unpredictable behavior on his own front porch irks Marilyn, president of the local Neighborhood Restoration Association (NRA), who insists Ivan be put in a "special place," in order to keep up the local morale. Recognizing the war on terror has to also be fought on the home front, Hannah and Ivan choose to reenter mainstream society and credit Marilyn for her bright idea.

    “Deconstructing the Myth of the Booty” comes to the Strand Theater Company in Baltimore, January 2010!

    WASHINGTON, DC -The Saartjie Project has garnered international attention for its boundary-stretching stage presentations that explores the mysticism, paradoxes and complexities surrounding the black female body. “Deconstructing the Myth of the Booty” is no exception. Voted a “Most Intriguing Pick” at the 2009 Capital Fringe Festival “Deconstructing the Myth” uses performance art to explore contemporary perceptions of gender, race, and power amidst the backdrop of the tumultuous life of 19th-century Saartjie Baartman, the company’s namesake.

    Saartjie (pronounced Sar-kay) Baartman – was the South African woman paraded around Europe under the showname,“Hottentot Venus”. She was caged to show off her large buttocks, dissected upon her death and placed in a museum.

    This January the Saartjie Project comes to Baltimore to bring her story to life. Founding Producer and Baltimore native Jessica Solomon said, “We are extremely excited about the production and are committed to using art as a catalyst of self-expression, self-definition and healing. This is not a performance to miss!” “Deconstructing the Myth of the Booty” will be at the Strand Theater Company, 1823 North Charles St., Baltimore, MD 21201 Saturday, January 16th, 7:30pm and Sunday, January 17th, 3pm. $10 Students, $15 General admission. Tickets go on sale at www.thesaartjieproject.org on December 14th, 2009.
