Camille A. Brown is a prolific Black female choreographer whose work examines the cultural narrative of African American identity. A Jacob’s Pillow Dance Award-winner and Guggenheim Fellowship-recipient, her bold work taps into both ancestral stories and contemporary culture to capture a range of deeply personal experiences.
Drawing on historic and contemporary rhythms and rituals of the African Diaspora, ink examines the culture of Black life that is often appropriated, rewritten, or silenced. Stunning modern dance melds with pedestrian interactions in poignant vignettes about Black superpowers. The work will be performed with live music that blends blues, hip-hop, jazz, and swing.
This performance is presented in partnership with the August Wilson Center for African American Culture.
