Urban Bush Women at MSU Riley Center

Tuesday, March 6, 2018 - 7:30 pm

Urban Bush Women dance like nobody else, with high energy, athleticism and an artistic vision that flows from the African American experience. Choreographer Jawole Willa Jo Zollar founded the Brooklyn, New York-based troupe in 1984. "I wanted a company that brought forth the vulnerability, sassiness and bodaciousness of the women I experienced growing up in Kansas City," she said. Urban Bush Women works with musicians, writers, poets and other artists to create works dealing with the history, culture and spiritual traditions of African Americans. Expect a feast for the eyes, sometimes emotionally wrenching but always uplifting, imbued with what the company calls "the bittersweet joy of survival." Tickets may be purchased online, by phone or in person at the MSU Riley Center Box Office. Click the "Link" below for more information.
