Three fierce, clever and witty female characters take us through stories of community, heritage, womanhood, friendship and most importantly; hair. The Head Wrap Dairies celebrates versatility in Afro-hair, diversity amongst black women and empowers ALL women (and the men in their lives) to embrace 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’s unique signature blend of club styles; House, Waacking and Vogue choreography fused with African and Contemporary dance, accompanied by a commissioned soundtrack of afro-beats, Ghanaian and Nigerian Highlife and House music.
A pre-show installation provides a multisensory experience and includes commissioned art work, recorded poetry, hair & head wrap displays and drinkable conditioning smoothies which promote healthy hair!
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!
