"For truth to tell, dancing in all its forms cannot be excluded from the curriculum of all noble education: dancing with the feet, with ideas, with words, and, need I add that one must also be able to dance with pen- that one must learn how to write." Friedrich Nietzsche

For more than thirty years, choreographer Jawole Willa Jo Zollar’s company has given expression to the vitality and boldness of African-American women. Director Raelle Myrick Hodges, writer Keisha Zollar, and the artists of Urban Bush Women have joined Zollar in developing Hair and Other Stories, a multidisciplinary, evening-length work about race, gender identity, and economic inequality in the lives of African-American women. The company will share a preview of this new work, which will premiere in April 2017 at the Virginia Arts Festival. The performance will be followed by a discussion with the artists.
