Feisty dance show explores women

The Head Wrap Diaries is a dance theatre production that uses comedy, movement, and music, to explore women, beauty, hair, and culture. Weaving good humoured storytelling with beautifully physical traditional and contemporary African dance, the piece is set to a sizzling soundtrack of R’n’B and Ghanaian pop music.

It is on at the Peel Centre, Dronfield, on November 11, and the Glebe Field Centre, Crich, on November 11.

Told through the stories of three feisty, and very different, female dancers playing several characters, it explores community, heritage, womanhood, and friendship, and celebrates versatility and diversity.

It is a noisy, colourful Live & Local show that will transform the the venues into a hair salon, and allow the audience to watch, interact with, and join a journey, that takes them from childhood to the present day.
