Jezebel is a dance performance inspired by the Video Vixen: female models who appeared in hip hop video clips in the late 90s and early 00s. Images in the mass media — and in music videos particularly — often projected the female in a hyper-sensualized way. The repetitive images in these videos reinforce stereotypes associated in particular with women of colour.

Jezebel refuses to be defined by others. She navigates the landscape of hip-hop culture, looking for ways to reclaim her own image. Can Jezebel deconstruct the controversial stereotype associated with the black hip-hop honey? How did this video girl redefine herself today?
