ABOUT THE PERFORMANCES
Urban Bush Women’s
Hair and Other Stories
Friday, February 9, 2018 at 8pm
Pre-show talk with Urban Bush Women, 7pm
Post-show dance party immediately following the performance!
“. . . the Urban Bush Women are committed, triple-threat performers who dance, sing and act with a sometimes searing sense of truthfulness.” – The New York Times
Drawing on Urban Bush Women’s visceral and thoughtful approach to co-creation, Hair and Other Stories uses humor, music and powerful movement to explore self-image, race and gender inequality – all through the lens of hair, primarily that of African-American women. Deftly combining athleticism with intellect, the dancers gracefully pull the audience into the conversation. They invite you into their living rooms, their kitchens, their salons, and you can’t help but accept!
While in Raleigh, Urban Bush Woman will also be throwing a Hair Party, leading a Community Sing, and more! To learn about these events and to RSVP, visit go.ncsu.edu/UBW
Marc Bamuthi Joseph/The Living Word Project
Wednesday, March 28, 2018 at 8pm
Post-show talk with Marc Bamuthi Joseph and the company, immediately following the performance.
“Marc Bamuthi Joseph belongs to a rare breed of artists who can kindle political and cultural awareness while delivering a highly entertaining performance.” – The Philadelphia Inquirer
Named one of “The Most Influential People in Dance Today” by Dance Magazine and a 2017 TED Global Fellow, Marc Bamuthi Joseph, is celebrated for his passionate performances that weave spoken word, dance, social issues, and empathy. Inspired by memories of playing soccer growing up, Joseph draws on his experiences as a child of Haitian immigrants. The multimedia work is an action-packed meditation on freedom and citizenship with “the beautiful game” at its core.
Joseph will be with NC State LIVE for a week in March, partnering with Futbol 4 All, a youth soccer program, to offer soccer clinics and site-specific performances. For more visit go.ncsu.edu/peh-LO-tah
