Head Wrap Diaries
by Uchenna Dance
as part of Black History Month 2017
Tues 17 Oct, 7:30pm
Three fierce, clever and witty female characters take us through stories of community, heritage, friendship, and most importantly; hair. The Head Wrap Dairies empowers ALL women (and the men in their lives) to embrace and celebrate their individual beauty.
This interactive dance-theatre experience is set within a South London hair-salon called BE U Tiful, giving you front row seats as we watch, interact with and are immersed in a journey from childhood to the present day. These stories are told using Vicki Igbokwe’s | Uchenna Dance’ unique signature blend of club styles; House, Waacking and Vogue fused with African and Contemporary dance, accompanied by a commissioned soundtrack of Afro house, folk, electronic dance music, jazz and Ghana gospel.
“Here is a performance that is engaging, authentic, culturally rooted and beautifully danced ”
Ian Abbott, Writing About Dance
