Live performance- You are in for a real treat !
Three fierce, clever and witty female characters take us through stories of community, heritage womanhood and friendship.This interactive dance theatre production celebrates versatility and diversity dealing with issues of femininity, beauty, culture and most importantly; hair.
Vicki Igbokwe | Uchenna Dance’s choreography blends club styles House, Waacking and Vogue fused with African and Contemporary dance. The Head Wrap Diaries gives you front row seats to a journey from childhood to the present day.
Hair – worn long, worn short, worn wavy or in braids – is the subject of The Head Wrap Diaries, a funny and uplifting dance theatre performance. It’s an interactive show set in a hair salon
about people, and their ongoing relationship with hair.
Mixing dance, theatre and storytelling with a good dose of humour, the performance venue is transformed into a Be-U- Tiful hair salon, with wig stands and chairs set around a performing space.
“…beautifully rehearsed and performed with infectious energy. Clemenson is a notably fierce performer, waacking with fearsome speed and precision. London Dance
Audience members are welcomed by stylists Linda and Riyah who will take you on a hair journey that will have you laughing out loud, thinking about your own (and everyone else’s!) hair while you learn a thing or two about afro-hair, straight from the hairdresser’s chair. This exciting dance experience features a sizzling soundtrack of sounds from 90s R’n’B to traditional Ghanaian pop music.
