Join Urban Bush Women company members for an embodied musical happy-hour spectacular! Guests will draw on their own personal hair stories to explore pride, loss, and love for self and community through music, guided conversations, games, dance, and sound creation. Please note that this Hair Party will take place at HotHouse Fort Greene at 87 Elliot Place, Brooklyn, NY.
With Urban Bush Women company members Tendayi Kuumba, Du'Bois A'Keen, Courtney J. Cook, and special guest DJ Manchild Black. Come for the Hair Party and stay for food and drinks (for purchase) at Hot House Fort Greene.
Hair Parties are interactive workshops—combining conversation, guided movement, and excerpts from Urban Bush Women's Hair and Other Stories—that encourage participants to re-examine closely held beliefs about themselves in society. Using hair as a lens through which to examine systemic racism in America, Urban Bush Women fosters bravery and risk-taking to unapologetically delve into conversations on race relations in the United States.
