Zollar: Uncensored

“So juicily do the dancers in Jawole Willa Jo Zollar’s company project empowerment, self-esteem, and strength under duress that after every dance, you want to cheer.” – The Village Voice

“I work to listen and help uncover the under-told perspectives of people who have often been told they have limited power and potential.” – Jawole Willa Jo Zollar

Kicking off the Urban Bush Women’s 25th Anniversary season, Zollar: Uncensored explores and interrogates Jawole Willa Jo Zollar’s early investigations into the sensual and the power of women. Her early work explored these themes; however they were considered by many to be too controversial for touring in the late 80’s. This is the first time since that time period that Jawole has revisited this content. Still interested in “erotic integrity,” Jawole examines an essential aspect of human nature from an empowered stance.
