Urban Bush Women

Hair & Other Stories

Saturday, September 21, 2019 at 7:30 pm

Drawn from personal and public narratives centered on individual identity in a collective culture, Hair & Other Stories investigates issues of body image, race, gender identity, economic inequity, and more. With humor, poignancy, and thoughtfulness, Urban Bush Women  - a stirring contemporary dance company comitted to pushing the boundaries of storytelling through spoken word, movement, and singing -  enacts the everyday pursuit of the extraordinary. 

Company founder Jawole Willa Jo Zollar will also create a new work for the UI Department of Dance's Dance Gala, In Motion, which will be presented on the Hancher stage on November 15 and 16.
