About Cherish Menzo
Through threatening twirls and shimmering soundscapes Cherish Menzo manages to make you aware of ‘the gaze at the other’. The choreographer and performer is a regular on the international stage and knows how to captivate her audience from start to finish using her powerful, controlled presence.
You may recognise Cherish from the We Are Public programme Jezebel, in which she redefines and reconquers the stereotypical image of Video Vixens, the hyper-sensual black women seen in 90s and 00s hip-hop music videos. Her performance earned her the Fringe Award 2019 and a nomination for the BNG Theaterprijs 2020.
