You Can Dance: Hair Parties with Urban Bush Women

Hair Parties are informal gatherings where small, performative elements of Urban Bush Women’s Hair & Other Stories are used to ignite dialogue.

Using the deceptively simple topic of hair as the organizing principle – how hair color, length, and varying degrees of curl affect our definitions of ‘good hair’ and ‘bad hair’ both within and outside of the African American community – Hair Parties encourage participants to re-examine closely-held beliefs about themselves, society, class, race, gender, age and individual beauty.

Political, fun and sometimes raucous, Hair Parties combine conversation, guided movement explorations and performance highlights from Urban Bush Women’s dance/theater piece Hair & Other Stories.
