Event description
ink by Camille A. Brown & Dancers is an amalgamation of African-American social dance, African, tap, jazz, modern and hip-hop, employing everyday interactions of people and relationships as grounds for “accessing one’s innate super powers and finding liberation.”
The performacne culminates a trilogy about identity that began with Mr. TOL E. RAncE in 2012 and BLACK GIRL: Linguistic Play in 2015.
ink is presented in collaboration with music director Allison Miller, percussionist Wilson Torres, violinist Juliette Jones, and composer/pianist Scott Patterson. Lead commissioners are Peak Performances @ Montclair State University, NJ, and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, with support from the Lumberyard.
ink premiered at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in late 2017.
About Camille A Brown & Dancers
Dance Magazine, in a piece about Camille A. Brown, placed the renowned choreographer in the company of television producer Shonda Rhimes and film director Ava DuVernay, ”part of a cultural movement of black female artists who are redefining how African-American stories are told: with humanity, sensitivity, depth and intellectual sophistication.”
Her bold creations—including NBC’s Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert and Broadway’s Once on This Island, fuse ancestral stories and contemporary culture in a way that celebrates, challenges and inspires.
