World Premiere! Weaving contemporary dance, music, and text with the history, culture, and spiritual traditions of the African Diaspora, this astonishing troupe performs innovative, exciting works that bring untold stories to life. In their Virginia Arts Festival debut, the company will perform the world premiere of Hair and Other Stories, an evening-length work that addresses matters of race, gender identity and economic inequality through the lens of physical appearance, including the cultural significance of African American women’s hair. Discover entertaining, thought-provoking dance that is “about searching, about remembering, about bringing the past out of the shadows, out of dreams… tough, brave, and sensual” (Dance Magazine).
