A mix of fashion and otherness, Scalped is an outdoor dance theatre exhibition piece focusing on black women’s hair in professional spaces and western society.
In a world of consistent judgement and literal poking and prodding we play on the idea that life is a fashion show. The piece includes nods to Grace Jones whose career embodies breaking free from expectations and the boundaries faced by Black women.
The overriding message is of self-acceptance within “attachments or no attachments”.
