Urban Bush Women: Hair Parties

An event that combines excerpts of Hair and Other Stories with dialogue practice using the deceptively simple topic of HAIR as the organizing principle — what and 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, improvisation and highlights from UBW’s new work, Hair and Other Stories.
