Culture and control. The appearance plays a role, the hair, of women, of black women. With New Growth, dancer and performer Nasheeka Nedsreal brings the multifaceted, multi-knot network of power to the stage. A variety of cultural and political struggles are caught in the hair, a contradictory knot between ideals of beauty and racist perceptions, envy, fear, pride, of fashion and inherited techniques, of industrial standardization and political coding, of self-images, external attributions, of fantasies and independent Growth. Can this braid be detangled?
