EVENT: The Headwrap Diaries

Hair – worn long, worn short, worn wavy or in braids – is the subject of The Head Wrap Diaries, a funny and uplifting dance theatre show set in a hair salon.

An Online Performance by Uchenna Dance

Screened HERE
From 1:00 PM on Friday 16 October
to 11:00 PM on Thursday 22 October
Running time: 60 minutes

Blending club styles House, Waacking, and Vogue with African and Contemporary Dance, with a good dose of humour and a sizzling soundtrack of sounds, The Head Wrap Diaries explores femininity, beauty, culture, sisterhood and most importantly – HAIR!

Meet 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.

The Headwrap Diaries is available as part of ‘Three Dance Films’ brought to you in partnership with Rural Touring Dance Initiative. Each show will be available for a week only and will be released on a Friday afternoon. .

The show can be watched easily and for free  HERE.
It is accompanied by a Q&A session with the artists which will be held on Zoom, anyone can book to attend.
