Event Details

Founded in 1984 by
choreographer Jawole Willa Jo Zollar, Urban Bush Women (UBW) is a
Brooklyn-based performance ensemble and dance company under the artistic
direction of Chanon Judson and Samantha Speis.

UBW seeks to bring the untold and
under-told histories and stories to light through dance. We do this from a
woman-centered perspective and as members of the African Diaspora community in
order to create a more equitable balance of power in the dance world and
beyond.

 

Legacy Lineage Liberation celebrates the power of Women( ) in an evening of classic works
that transcend genres and amplify the voices of Women( ) of color. 
These iconic works by
UBW Founder Jawole Willa Jo Zollar give multiple dimensions of life that
resonate in this time of reflection around equity and justice, and that lift up
Black lives in inspiring ways. The program (subject to change) may include: I Don’t Know, but I Been Told, If You Keep on Dancin’ You Never
Grow Old
(excerpts), Give Your Hands to Struggle, Girlfriends, Women’s
Resistance,
and Haint Blue.
