Description:
The Moss Arts Center at Virginia Tech presents Urban Bush Women performance titled “Hair and Other Stories” on Saturday, April 28, 2018.

For more than 30 years, choreographer Jawole Willa Jo Zollar’s company, Urban Bush Women, has given expression to the vitality and boldness of African American women. “Hair and Other Stories” is a multidisciplinary work addressing matters of race, gender identity, and economic inequality in the lives of African American women.

The company has made an indelible mark on the field with bold, innovative, demanding, and exciting works that challenge long-held assumptions about women, people of color, body types, movement styles, society, and history. The company weaves contemporary dance, music, and text with the history, culture, and spiritual traditions of African Americans and the African diaspora.

Tickets can be purchased online, in person at the Moss Arts Center Box Office Monday-Friday from 10 am - 5:30 pm and Saturday 10 am - 4 pm and by phone at 540-231-5300.
