Hair Parties are informal gatherings where small, performative elements of 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 UBW’s dance/theater piece Hair & Other Stories.
