Three fierce, clever and witty female characters take us through stories of community, heritage, friendship, and most importantly; hair. The Head Wrap Dairies empowers ALL women (and the men in their lives) to embrace and celebrate 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’ unique signature blend of club styles; 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 pre-show installation provides a multi sensory experience and includes commissioned art work, recorded poetry, hair and 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!
