Festival 2019 | Urban Bush Women

August 23 @ 8:15 pm - 10:15 pm

Urban Bush Women
Doris Duke Theatre
August 21-25, 2019

In this choreographic riff, Urban Bush Women returns to Jacob’s Pillow drawing inspiration from the musical life and spiritual journey of legendary composer and saxophonist John Coltrane. “…More than a tribute to a jazz icon. It immerses the audience in what it is to be an artist” (The Washington Post), “Walking with ‘Trane” highlights the ensemble’s genuine movement to a score inspired by the iconic album “A Love Supreme”.

Celebrating their 35th anniversary, the revolutionary Urban Bush Women seeks to bring the untold and under-told histories and stories of disenfranchised people to light through dance, founded by Jawole Willa Jo Zollar, recipient of the 2017 Bessie Award for Lifetime Achievement.
