WATCH: Urban Bush Women’s “Hair and Other Stories”

Members of the Brooklyn-based dance company Urban Bush Women, including founding artistic director Jawole Willa Jo Zollar and associate artistic director Chanon Judson, discuss the immersive performance work “Hair & Other Stories.” The piece, which incorporates dance, singing and storytelling, looks at issues around racism and body image, and ideas of liberation and self-determination. It is being performed at BRIC House this month in connection with Urban Bush Women’s year-long artistic residency at BRIC, coinciding with the organization’s 40th anniversary season.
