Urban Bush Women perform with live music at Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival in Becket.
Urban Bush Women / Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival

In this choreographic riff, Urban Bush Women returns to Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival with live music, drawing inspiration from the musical life and spiritual journey of legendary composer and saxophonist John Coltrane. 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.
