ONE of this year’s most unusual, colourful and inviting performances on the rural touring programme is The Head Wrap Diaries, with Uchenna Dance, coming to Dorset and Somerset in mid-November.
The Head Wrap Diaries, with Artsreach at Halstock on 16th November, features three fierce, clever and witty female characters exploring stories of community, heritage, womanhood and friendship.
The show celebrates versatility in Afro-hair, diversity amongst black women and empowers ALL women to embrace their individual beauty. Dealing with issues of femininity, beauty, culture and, most importantly, hair, it mixes dance, theatre and storytelling with a good dose of humour.
See the venue transformed into the Be-u-tiful Hair Salon as stylists Linda and Riyah take you on a hair journey that will have you laughing out loud and thinking about your hair, while you learn a thing or two about afro-hair, straight from the hairdresser’s chair!
Using their signature blend of club styles House, Waacking and Vogue fused with African and Contemporary dance, The Head Wrap Diaries is a hugely enjoyable journey from childhood to the present day.
