The Head Wrap Diaries
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, accompanied by a commissioned soundtrack of Afro house, folk, electronic dance music, jazz and Ghana gospel. A multisensory pre-show installation will get you in the mood with specially commissioned art work, poetry, hair and head wrap displays, and drinkable conditioning smoothies which promote healthy hair! While the post-show Head Wrap Bar is your opportunity to meet the company, share experiences, have a drink and test out some head wrapping for yourself. Don’t forget to bring your fabrics!
You may not think that this is your cup of tea. But believe me - It is for everyone. I have seen it and it is brilliant! - paul@themarkettheatre
