Hair – worn long, worn short, worn curly, wrapped up or in braids – is the subject of The Head Wrap Diaries, a funny and uplifting show that mixes dance, theatre and storytelling with a good dose of humour.
You are welcomed to a hair salon called Be-U-Tiful; where three fierce, clever female characters take you on a journey that will have you laughing out loud. This exciting show features a fabulously produced score by Ghanaian musician and composer Kweku Aacht who provides a sizzling soundtrack of sounds from Afro house, folk and electronic dance music to jazz and Ghana gospel.
“Well-crafted and beautifully done. Really enjoyed the show” – Christine Ohuruogu, International Athlete
“Here is a work that is engaging, authentic, culturally rooted and beautifully danced with an intelligent installation and (head) wrap-around programme” – Ian Abbott, Writing About Dance
