UD, The Head Wrap Diaries, The Place

The Head Wrap Diaries, presented by Uchenna Dance

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!
