The Head Wrap Diaries by Uchenna Dance

20 October 2017

This production was part of our autumn 2017 season

Three fierce, clever and witty female characters take us through stories of community, heritage, womanhood,  friendship, and most importantly; hair. Set within a South London hair-salon called BE U Tiful, The Head Wrap Diaries gives you front row seats to watch, interact with and be immersed in a journey from childhood to the present day. It is told through a unique blend of 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. A multisensory pre-show installation will get you into the mood, while the post-show Head Wrap Bar is your opportunity to meet the company, share experiences, have a drink and test out some head wrapping for yourself. Don’t forget to bring your fabrics!

Accompanied by a commissioned soundtrack of Afro house, folk, electronic dance music, jazz and Ghana gospel.

Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and partnerships with The Rural Touring Dance Initiative, The Place, Ged Matthews at Central St Martins, The Albany and Trinity Laban.
