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.
