Celebrating 30 years as an unstoppable force in American dance, Urban Bush Women continues to make visceral, politically-charged work that is electric and inspiring. With Hep Hep Sweet Sweet, founder and choreographer Jawole Willa Jo Zollar presents an earthy and provocative new take on the music and culture fueled by the Great Migration that emerged at jazz clubs in Harlem and Zollar’s native Kansas City. The program also includes dark swan, which just this month won a Bessie award for "Outstanding Revival," and Walking with ‘Trane, Chapter 2, a work inspired by the life of John Coltrane and his seminal jazz suite A Love Supreme, with live music by pianist George Caldwell.

Pre-show lecture from 7:10-30pm in the auditorium.
