Urban Bush Women
March 14, 2011 at 8 p.m. | Empie Theatre
Urban Bush Women, founded in 1984 by choreographer Jawole Willa Jo Zollar, seeks to bring the untold and under-told histories and stories of disenfranchised people to light through dance. They do this from a woman-centered perspective and as members of the African Diaspora community in order to create a more equitable balance of power in the dance world and beyond. They do this by facilitating the use of art as a means of addressing issues of social justice and encouraging civic engagement.
This year, Muhlenberg is proud to host Urban Bush Women as Baker Artists-in-Residence. The company will serve as guests artists for the American College Dance Festival, Northeast Regional Conference, on campus March 9-12.
