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 specially commissioned soundtrack of Afro house, folk, electronic dance music, jazz and Ghana gospel. A pre-show art installation will get you in the mood 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!
