About Haint Blu: 

Haint Blu is a new, site-specific work created by acclaimed dance collective Urban Bush Women. Named after the color used by Southern families to paint their front porches to ward off bad spirits, Haint Blu takes audiences on an immersive dance-theater journey throughout the Historic Hampton House exploring the movements, histories, and stories of Brownsville community elders and ancestors. Born out of urgent concern for personal and global wellness, Haint Blu aims to reclaim and implement the liberatory practices communities of color hold to navigate adversity as alternatives to oppressive constructs threatening our coexistence with each other and the planet. UBW will engage the Brownsville community, researching local stories and shared memories as part of the creative process. A dynamic series of activities and events designed in collaboration with the community and local partners will amplify this collective work.
