Urban Bush Women at Dance Place

We're so excited to co-present the DC premiere of Urban Bush Women's Hair & Other Stories at DC's Dance Place on Saturday, February 16 at 8pm and Sunday, February 17 at 4pm.

Crafted out of personal narratives from our communities, kitchens, living rooms, and social media, Hair & Other Stories blends dance-theater and conversations to challenge existing American values and celebrate our choices around “who we be” and “how we do!”

Urban Bush Women’s uniquely bold and boundary-pushing storytelling weaves contemporary dance, music, and text with the history, culture, and spiritual traditions of African Americans and the African Diaspora. This radical re-imagining of an earlier work (HairStories, 2001) features the choreography of Samantha Speis and Chanon Judson in collaboration with the company, new music compositions by The Illustrious Blacks, with stage direction by Raelle Myrick-Hodges.
