Camille A. Brown & Dancers - "ink"

Friday, January 26, 2024 | 7:30 p.m.

“Every aspect of the dance-making here is thoroughly accomplished.”— The New York Times

“She is a griot of dance, carrying the lore of how dance urges humans towards freedom, celebration and unity. If any artist can finally persuade America of dance’s essential value, it will be Camille A. Brown.” – Dance Magazine

Dancer, choreographer, director and dance educator Camille A. Brown is the founder and artistic director of Camille A. Brown & Dancers, and has choreographed commissioned pieces for dance companies, Broadway shows and universities throughout the United States. Brown started her career as a dancer in Ronald K. Brown’s Evidence, A Dance Company, and has been a guest artist with Rennie Harris’s Puremovement, and Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. She has choreographed major Broadway shows such as Choir Boy, Once on This Island and the production of Jesus Christ Superstar: Live in Concert! that aired on NBC.

ink is the final installment of Brown’s trilogy on Black identity. It features a series of duets and solos, weaving together elements of African-American social dance, African, tap, jazz, modern, and hip-hop movement, accompanied by percussion-driven original music performed live by a quartet. Through ancestral stories and pop culture references, ink examines self-empowerment, Black love, brotherhood, and resilience.
