Urban Bush Women: Hair and Other Stories

Friday, February 16 through Saturday, February 17
Kravis Center for the Performing Arts

Bold, empowering and fierce, Urban Bush Women earned widespread acclaim for their innovative pieces that explore all aspects of the African diaspora. In their new work, Hair and Other Stories, they use a visceral, intellectual, and transcendent approach to construct a live experience that includes processional performance from imagined or real spaces, to engage audiences around the subjects of self-image, race, and gender inequality.

This PEAK performance is made possible by a grant from the 
MLDauray Arts Initiative in honor of Leonard and Sophie Davis

Beyond the Stage: Join us for a free post-performance talk by Steven Caras immediately following the Feb. 16 performance

Guests attending performances in the Rinker Playhouse will receive a ticket voucher for one complimentary beverage. (Underage guests will be offered a non-alcoholic selection.)

The presentation of Urban Bush Women: Hair and Other Stories on February 16-17 is made possible by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, with additional support from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Doors open 30 minutes prior to performance. Please allow time for parking. Program subject to change.
