Urban Bush Women

October 22 – 24, 2015
Zellerbach Theatre
PLA Presents
Runtime: 1 hour, 30 minutes

The Urban Bush Women troupe uses cultural expression as a catalyst for social change. The performance ensemble of seven women weaves contemporary dance, music and text with the history, culture and spiritual traditions of the African diaspora. Bold and demanding, their works challenge long-held assumptions about women, people of color, body types and styles of movement.
