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!”

With costume design by DeeDee Gomes, projection design by Nick Hussong, and lighting design by Xavier Pierce, Hair & Other Stories explores disquieting perceptions of beauty, identity, and race in these extraordinary times. This is the urgent dialogue of the 21st Century. Don’t come here for no show: we’re goin’ on a journey!

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.
