YDT 2017: Urban Bush Women

The critically acclaimed dance company Urban Bush Women (UBW) will be the focus of Yale Dance Theater’s (YDT) spring 2017 project. Celebrating its 33rd Anniversary year, Urban Bush Women uses dance as both the message and the medium to bring together diverse audiences through innovative choreography, community collaboration and artistic leadership development. Founded by Jawole Willa Jo Zollar in 1984, UBW “seeks to bring the untold and under-told histories and stories of disenfranchised people to light through dance.” Working with UBW-affiliated artists, YDT dancers will learn UBW’s unique methods of using dance as a means for social engagement, centering on seminal work from the company’s repertory.
