PRESENTS WHITE BIRD UNCAGED 2017-18

HAIR AND OTHER STORIES
In 2001, White Bird introduced Urban Bush Women with Jawole Willa Jo Zollar’s humorous and poignant Hair Stories. Hair and Other Stories is a brand new multidisciplinary work that addresses matters of race, gender, identity and economic inequality through the lens of hair, primarily that of African American women. Harking back to the original Hair Stories, this exciting work with a new director is certain to be just as memorable.
