Storied Black women-led dance company Urban Bush Women marks more than 35 years of celebrating African diasporic culture through movement with Legacy + Lineage + Liberation. The performance features the premiere of Haint Blu, created during the troupe’s fall residency at Dartmouth College’s Hopkins Center for the Arts. The multidisciplinary work uses dance and theater to investigate themes of memory, magic, ancestry and equity. Other featured pieces include works by Urban Bush Women founder Jawole Willa Jo Zollar. A discussion with the artists follows the Saturday show.
