Urban Bush Women
Choreography by Jawole Willa Jo Zollar and Samantha Speis, in collaboration with the company

“Few companies connect as deeply and genuinely with their audiences.”
—The New York Times

John Coltrane’s 1965 album A Love Supreme was a revelation. Dismissed when it was first released, it soon came to be seen as affirming a divinity that defies dogma or definition. At the confluence of two important anniversaries—the album’s 50th and Urban Bush Women’s 30th—founder Jawole Willa Jo Zollar was poised to create something new in its arresting shadow.

The result is this choreographic riff in two parts. Performed by the celebrated company, based on dramaturgy by Talvin Wilks, and featuring a Coltrane-inspired score by composers George Caldwell and Philip White, this evening-length suite fuses Urban Bush Women’s inventive movement with Coltrane’s revolutionary post-bop spirit.

Composed by Philip White & George Caldwell
Dramaturgy by Talvin Wilks
Lighting design by Russell Sandifer
Costume design by Helen Lucille-Collen
Video design by Wendall Harrington
