Whip it Good
Wednesday, April 16, 7:00 p.m.
ArtCenter/South Florida, 800 Lincoln Road
www.artcentersf.org
Whip It Good is a live performance by Jeannette Ehlers, a Caribbean diaspora artist born and based in Denmark. It was first presented in Berlin at Ballhaus Naunynstrasse in 2013 and later recreated at Vestindisk Pakhus ("The West India Warehouse") in Copenhagen, where, in earlier times, rum, sugar, and coffee from the Antilles were lugged in. This performance will be re-enacted where she will challenge the audience with a deceivingly simple action: whipping-one of the most brutal means of punishment during slavery. Whip It Good is a modest but tense rebellion against the past.
