NACC presents: 'Da Kink in My Hair: Drumming, Singing & Dance

'Da Kink in My Hair

"Very, very funny!  Infectious music... the stories resonate for all of us... serious, vibrant, hopeful, joyous!"  ~ The National Post

Set in a Caribbean hair salon in Toronto, 'da Kink in my Hair gives voice to eight black women who tell their unforgettable stories in a kaleidoscope of drumming, singing and dance. It is a testament to the challenges and triumphs in the lives of contemporary black women, many of whom are Caribbean immigrants to North America. Mixing laughter and tears, revelation and inspiration, the unapologetically intense stories of each woman are woven together in this powerful piece.

'da Kink in my Hair made its first full-length dramatic debut at the Toronto Fringe Festival in July 2001 and was hailed by the Toronto Sun as the "Pick of the Fringe!" It was next restaged at the Toronto Harbourfront Centre as part of the Black History Kuumba Festival and then at the New York Fringe Festival where it was selected out of 196 productions as "Pick of the New York Fringe." In 2005 it became the first Canadian play to grace the stage at Toronto's prestigious Princess of Wales Theatre, repeatedly playing to sold out houses and extended five times due to popular demand. After expanding to venues in San Diego and London, England, Global TV debuted a weekly television series based on the play, airing from 2007 to 2009.
