In The Head Wrap Diaries at Liverpool’s Capstone Theatre, 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 the audience front row seats to watch, interact with and be immersed in a journey from childhood to the present day. The narrative is told through a unique blend of House, Waacking and Vogue fused with African and Contemporary dance, which is accompanied by a specially commissioned soundtrack of Afro-house, folk, electronic dance music, jazz and Ghana gospel.
The Head Wrap Diaries is accompanied by a pre-show art installation which will get you in the mood; there is also a post-show Head Wrap Bar which gives you the opportunity to meet the company, share experiences, have a drink and test out some head wrapping for yourself.
Recommended for ages five and up, this show celebrates the versatility in Afro-hair and promises to be a vibrant, empowering and uplifting experience for all audience members. Engaging, authentic and grounded in culture, The Head Wrap Diaries has community, conversation and participation at its heart and proud Afro-vibes dancing in its soul.
