1. In the 'new' South Africa, women are assuming sovereignty over their own life and thus steadily prevailing against the widespread gender-based violence in the country. They are reviving the pacifist, non-hetero-normative, 'matriarchal' society of the pre-colonial era. In doing so, they are creating a subtle decolonization of art, history and society.
    A dancer-choreographer pushes boundaries of her art and leads us through her scarlet universe into the story of the body of black women : enslaved, abused, burnt, and now born again by their own strength. Taking the impulse of the montage from the echo of their desires, this essay portrays contemporary goddesses

    Dans la 'nouvelle' Afrique du Sud, des femmes jouent le premier rôle dans leur vie; luttant contre la violence entre les genres, largement répandue dans le pays. Elles font écho à la société pré-coloniale pacifiste, non hétéro-normative et centrée sur les femmes. Elles opèrent ainsi une subtile décolonisation de l'art, de l'histoire et de la société. Une danseuse-chorégraphe repousse les frontières de son art et nous conduit, avec son univers écarlate, sur les traces d’une histoire du corps des femmes noires : esclavagisé, abusé, immolé, puis reconquis par elles-mêmes. Dans un montage qui joue de leurs désirs, cet essai fait le portrait de déesses contemporaines.
