Featuring the premiere of Haint Blu (proscenium version), a dance-theater work reflecting on familial lines through memory and magic, co-commissioned by the Hop and developed during the company's fall residency at Dartmouth.
Under the artistic direction of Chanon Judson and Samantha Speis, Urban Bush Women is committed to highlighting the beauty and strength of the African Diaspora and Haint Blu is no exception. Haint Blu uses performance as a center and source of healing, taking us through movement into stillness and rest: remembering, reclaiming, releasing and restoring.
Haint Blu is part of the evening's program created in honor of Urban Bush Women's 35th Anniversary. Legacy + Lineage + Liberation celebrates the power of Women+, with classic works by founder Jawole Willa Jo Zollar. These iconic works transcend genres and amplify the voices of women of color, giving multiple dimensions of life that resonate in this time of reflection around equity and justice, and lift up Black lives in inspiring ways.
