When an 18th century European art exhibit meets the millennial Black female gaze, critical response turns into a live event. Combining comedy, film, music, and movement, Obehi Janice: Casanova explores love, sex, power, beauty, and the politics of art. This solo piece from award-winning actress, writer, and comedian Obehi Janice delves into Casanova’s libertine persona, present-day racial, and sexual politics and the humor found in tearing down museum walls. Healing, ecstatic, and hilarious, Obehi’s latest show proves her place as a master storyteller able to employ risk and vulnerability to truly get to the heart of the matter.
