    Three fierce, clever and witty female characters take us through stories of community, heritage, womanhood, friendship, and most importantly, hair.

    Set within a South London hair-salon called BE U Tiful, The Head Wrap Diaries gives you front row seats to watch, interact with and be immersed in a journey from childhood to the present day. Told through a unique blend of house, waacking and vogue fused with African and contemporary dance and accompanied by a commissioned soundtrack of Afro house, folk, electronic dance music, jazz and Ghana gospel.

     

    A pre-show installation will get you in the mood with specially commissioned art work, poetry, hair and head wrap displays. While the post-show Head Wrap Bar is your opportunity to share experiences, have a drink and test out some head wrapping with the company. Don’t forget to bring your fabrics!

     

    ‘Here is a work that is engaging, authentic, culturally rooted and beautifully danced with an intelligent installation and (head) wrap-around programme.’ Writing About Dance

     

    The Head Wrap Diaries was INCREDIBLE. Laughter, good dancing and great energy!’ Isaac Ouro, A Younger Theatre
