About Dark And Lovely

Dark & Lovely is a performance from inside the Tumbleweave; a home for hair built from abandoned weaves and extensions. Using recorded conversation, music and written text Selina explores the complexities of social debate surrounding Black hair, transforming the Tumbleweave, which is admittedly ‘a little bit gross’, into something beautiful, which can transcend the weight of all the connotations placed upon it, and reveal just what our hair does, and more importantly, doesn’t tell us, about what it is to be Black.
