Summary
  • "The author's long-term engagement with the company has given her unprecedented access to Urban Bush Women. This Clearly contributes to her in-depth understanding of the dynamics of the company and of the choreographic processes that undergird Urban Bush Women Concert Pieces."--Sarah Davies Cordova, author of Paris Dances: Textual Choreographies in the Ninettenth-Century French Novel
  • Provocative, moving, powerful, explicit, strong, unapologetic. These are a few, words that have been used to describe the groundbreaking Brooklyno-based dance troupe Urban-Bush Women. Their unique aesthetic borrows from classical and contemporary dance techniques and theater characterization exercises, incorporates breath and vocalization, and employs space and movement to instill their performances with emotion and purpose. Urban Bush Women concerts are also deeply rooted in community activism, using socially conscious performances' to, places around the country--from the Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, and the Joyce Theater to community centers and school auditoriums--to inspire audience members to engage in neighborhood change and challenge stereotypes of gender, race, and class
  • Nadine George-Graves presents a comprehensive history of Urban Bush Women since their founding in 1984. She analyzes their complex work, drawing on interviews with current and former dancers and her own observation of and participation in Urban Bush Women rehearsals. The accompanying photographs capture the grace and power of the dancers in motion and provide a captivating look at an innovative company that continues to raise the bar for socially conscious dance. --Book Jacket
