'Hot Flashes' explores world
of womanhood after 50

Performance artist Rhodessa Jones returns to Yale Rep on Friday, April 19, with "Hot Flashes, Power Surges & Private Summers."

The multi-media show will be presented at 8 p.m. in the University Theatre, 222 York St.

"Hot Flashes" blends humor, theater and autobiographical insights to sheds light on the world of womanhood after 50. Jones' previous appearance in New Haven, "Big Butt Girls, Hard Headed Women," played to a sold-out house in.

"Jones works the house like the pro she is, cajoling, seducing and demanding attention." wrote the San Francisco Examiner, "She doesn't just talk about heat, she embodies it."

"Hot Flashes, Power Surges & Private Summers" premiered in March of 2000 at the Working Woman of the Year Festival, and went on to perform a sold-out run at Atlanta's Seven Stages in the fall of 2000.

Jones, director and founder of The Medea Project: Theater for Incarcerated Women and co-artistic director of the San Francisco theater company Cultural Odyssey, is an award-winning actress, dancer, singer, writer and teacher. In June 2001, Jones' film collaboration, "We Just Telling Stories," profiling her work with The Medea Project: Theater for Incarcerated Women, won Best Documentary at the San Francisco Black Film Festival. The award coincided with the release of a new book on Jones' work, titled, "Imagining Medea." Also last year she starred in the award-winning hit play "The Vagina Monologues" at Theater on the Square in San Francisco.
