About this show

Blending poetry, song and humor, Ella Turenne unlocks the history of "locs" experienced by Black women, revealing mishaps and triumphs. Through the eyes of 21 different characters, including a 5th grade bully and 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. Ella Turenne's World Premiere production weaves together 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.
