About

Urban Bush Women

FEATURING LIVE MUSIC

In this choreographic riff, Urban Bush Women returns to Jacob’s Pillow drawing inspiration from the musical life and spiritual journey of legendary composer and saxophonist John Coltrane. “…More than a tribute to a jazz icon. It immerses the audience in what it is to be an artist” (The Washington Post), 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.
