Wiley & the Hairy Man
Wiley & The Hairy Man is a story based on an African American folktale set deep in a southern swamp. Young Wiley’s days and dreams are haunted by the Hairy Man. Through dance, theater, and music, Leverage Dance Theater brings to life the mysteries of the swamp and the adventures of this plucky heroine. In an exciting duel of wits, Wiley learns to rely upon her own resources and conquers two villains – the Hairy Man and her own fear.
The creation of this performance was made possible with the financial support of the Regional Arts Commission & the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency.
