About Fades & Fellowship

Fades & Fellowship is a theatrical commentary set behind the backdrop of a barbershop that delves deeply into some of the most central issues affecting not only the communities in which the barbershops reside, but also the larger collective consciousness of America – issues ranging from educational inequities to racism and homophobia, from entrepreneurship and wealth consciousness to police brutality, and from health and image to relationship wellness.

It combines the power of reflective storytelling with the raw and culturally significant setting of the barbershop. This experience invites you into the world of barbers and the community of the barbershop as part of a provocative, unscripted, and narratively responsible storytelling experience.

Fades & Fellowship is both theatrical and conversational, simultaneously simple and complex. The experience is a celebration of both the raconteur who breathes fire into true tales of ordinary life and the storytelling novice who has lived through something extraordinary and yearns to share it. Since each story is true and every voice authentic, the show dances between documentary and theater in a unique, intimate, and enlightening experience.

Each show starts with a theme that the barbers explore, often in unexpected and thought-provoking ways, and includes facilitated small group discussions on how to be part of the effort to affect change.
