The ground-breaking performance ensemble Urban Bush Women takes the stage on Saturday, September 29 at 7:30 p.m. Crafted from personal narratives, kitchens and living rooms, social media and YouTube, Hair & Other Stories is a  radical re-imagining of an earlier work (HairStories, 2001) and features the choreography of Samantha Speis and Chanon Judson in collaboration with the company, new music compositions by The Illustrious Blacks (Manchildblack and Monstah Black) and stage direction by Raelle Myrick-Hodges. Wonderful and humorously disquieting, Hair & Other Stories explores perceptions of body image, race, gender identity and economic inequities. Dance Magazine says the dancers’ bodies in Urban Bush Women “…carry urgent letters to the world, stories bursting to be told. Healing stories, motivating stories, transformational stories.” Tickets are $19-$49.
