the hairy project (le projet chevelu en création)

June 18, 2015

Check out ‘The Hairy Project’, a new Montreal based Afro-contemporary dance show. The project, choreographed by Maria Isabel Rondon (Maria Lité Danse), is inspired by African hair accessories and our relationship with our hair. You can support the project here via Indiegogo; and see it from the 17th to the 19th of September 2015 at 8pm at the MAI (Montréal Arts Interculturels) 3680 Jeanne-Mance street, Montreal.

“Through their noncompliance to both gravity and Euro-American standards of beauty, black women’s hair has often taken on the form of an untamed monster whose roots plunge deeply into the personal and collective unconscious. Women’s hair sometimes conceals a hidden world of pain, shame and envy and the pathway towards acceptance may turn into a spiritual quest.”é-Danse/115237251919547
