SCALPED

For black women one of the most common shared experiences is a passive but ever present scrutiny. From what you wear to the way you walk, and most especially hair. Whether permed, braided, or in locs,
black hair is “political”.

The dance piece written by Damilola DK Fashola, and co-created  by Wofai, is a comment on the objectification and exhibitionism black hair brings.

With a nod to Grace Jones, self-acceptance triumphs through movement and rhythm in a world where

the CORPORATE meets the fantastic.

 

 A mix of fashion and otherness.
