Jawole Willa Jo Zollar is the award-winning founder of Urban Bush Women, a contemporary performance ensemble established in 1984 dedicated to exploring the use of cultural expression as a catalyst for social change. In 2006, Jawole was awarded a New York Dance and Performance Award (Bessie) and was awarded the Dance/USA Honor Award in 2016. The company has become renowned around the world for their breathtaking and innovative performances, bringing untold and under-told histories and stories to light through dance.

This two day course is a unique opportunity to spend two days working alongside Jawole and dancers from the company, with a series of practical masterclasses and discussion sessions that provide an insight into Jawole’s creative approach. The residency will explore UBW’s multi-disciplinary, community-centred approach, weaving dance, improvisation, history and tradition, whilst providing consideration to both creative and cultural concerns. It embraces the idea that each individual has a unique and powerful contribution to make.
