Uchenna Dance presents
The Head Wrap Diaries
Directed and choreographed by Vicki Igbokwe
Written by Bola Agbaje
Three fierce, clever, witty dancers take us through stories of community, heritage, womanhood, friendship, and, most importantly, hair.
Set within BE U Tiful, a South London hair salon, The Head Wrap Diaries takes you on a journey from childhood to the present, told through a unique blend of House, Waacking and Voguing fused with African and Contemporary dance, accompanied by an unbeatably good soundtrack of Afro-house, folk, jazz, and Ghanaian gospel.
A multisensory pre-show installation will get you in the mood with specially commissioned art, poetry, and hair-related displays.
After the show, stay for the Head Wrap Bar – your opportunity to meet the company, share your own experiences, try a drinkable hair-conditioning smoothie, and learn new head-wrapping techniques. Don’t forget to bring your fabrics!
This performance is suitable for ages 5 and up.
