Cocoa Dancer

04 May 2011

A theatrical worker simultaneously entertains tourists and preserves her cultural history while walking through a rack of drying cocoa beans at Belmont Estate.

During the production of chocolate, raw cocoa beans are first fermented in dark boxes, and then laid out under the sun for drying. To ensure the beans dry evenly workers walk through the racks several times a day - shuffling their bare feet beneath the cocoa beans to turn them over.
