This summer Vicki has started work on a new production idea called The Head Wrap Diaries (THWD). We are really proud to be supported by Arts Council England, The Place, The Albany and Central St Martins.
The Head Wrap Diaries is an immersive-interactive dance theatre production that uses comedy to explore, women, beauty, hair and culture. Told through the stories of three female characters we explore community, heritage, womanhood and friendship. This is not a ‘Natural verses Weaves’ it is a celebration of versatility and diversity.
THWD is currently in a research and development (R&D) phase and we are planning to preview the production in Autumn 2016 and tour Spring 2017. Stay tuned to find out how the R&D phase goes this year and check out the calendar for dates where you can attend informal work in progress performances of the idea created.
