“Hair & Other Stories” is a dance-theater work that reflects on race, identity, and ideas of beauty through the lens of Black women’s hair.

Using movement, song, and conversation, it explores what constitutes freedom, liberation, and release in our everyday struggles to rise to our Extra-ordinary Selves in extraordinary times. This is the urgent dialogue of the 21st Century.

Founded in 1984 by choreographer Jawole Willa Jo Zollar, the troupe Urban Bush Women seeks to bring the untold and under-told stories to light through dance.
