Event Description

This solo show weaves together Ella Turenne’s own stories of struggles with identity and beauty. From rituals that Black women hold in relation with their hair, to Ella’s experience as an American woman with strong ties to her Haitian culture, the play explores many deeply personal issues. Blending poetry, song and humor, Ella unlocks the history of locs experienced by Black women, revealing many mishaps and triumphs. Through the eyes of 21 different characters, a 5th grade bully to Madam CJ Walker, she exposes the hair connection – to politics, identity and culture, illustrating why hair is an intimate and essential part of Black life.
