San Jose Multicultural Artists Guild/Tabia African American Theatre Ensemble present the award winning dance company Urban Bush Women in "Hair and Other Stories."
Hair & Other Stories blends dance-theater and conversations that explore disquieting perceptions of beauty, identity, and race, and what constitutes the freedom to rise to our extra-ordinary selves in extraordinary times.
The simple topic of hair is explored – what and how hair color, length, and varying degrees of curl affect our definitions of good hair and bad hair both within and outside of the African American community – participants are encouraged to re-examine closely-held beliefs about themselves, society, class, race, gender, age and individual beauty.
In a time where we still fight for inclusion, this is a celebration of our "Hair" yet a reminder that "We are not our Hair." An important, invigorating, and inspiring work of must see theatre!
