Hancher Presents Lunch Discussion with Urban Bush Women

Tuesday, September 17, 2019, 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm
Free

Bring a brown bag lunch and join Hancher's Micah Ariel James and Chuy Renteria for a conversation with members of Urban Bush Women—a stirring contemporary dance company committed to pushing the boundaries of storytelling through spoken word, movement, and singing artists. They will discuss their latest work, Hair & Other Stories, which will be performed on the Hancher stage on Saturday, September 21. Drawn from personal and public narratives centered on individual identity in a collective culture, Hair & Other Stories investigates issues of body image, race, gender identity, economic inequity, and more. The conversation will be recorded for distribution on our in-house podcast Hancher Presents.
