“Join a group of Schreyer Scholars for "Urban Bush Women" Hair & Other Stories. The performance will address the plight of colored women. The Urban Bush Women perform around the country using their beautiful song, dance, and prose to powerfully address issues facing their community while entertaining their audience. The dance-theatre company has made an indelible mark with bold, innovative, demanding, and exciting works that challenge assumptions about women, people of color, body types, movement styles, society, and history. It weaves contemporary dance, music, and text with the history, culture, and spiritual traditions of African Americans and the African diaspora.

“The Urban Bush Women are committed, triple-threat performers who dance, sing, and act with a sometimes searing sense of truthfulness,” writes a critic for The New York Times.

Tickets are limited, but are free for Schreyer Scholars!”
