School Day Performance for Students in Grades 3-12

Known for high theatricality, gutsy moves, and virtuosic musicality, Camille A. Brown & Dancers soar through history like a whirlwind. Making a personal claim on history through the lens of a modern female perspective, Brown leads her dancers through dazzling excavations of ancestral stories. For this performance, she presents ink, the final installation of the company’s trilogy built on the theme of African-American identity. ink celebrates the rituals, gestural vocabulary and traditions that remain ingrained within the lineage of the African Diaspora, from generation to generation. The work examines the culture of Black life that is often appropriated, rewritten, or silenced. From the Abolitionist movement to the Civil Rights struggle, from the Black Power movement to the emergence of hip-hop, ink explores the link between the heart of the hip-hop cultural phenomenon and our current generation’s political response to socioeconomic injustice.

Pre- and post-show workshops offered.

This workshop will examine themes of identity, racial stereotypes, and cultural labels. Through the artistic vehicle of movement, ritual, and gestural vocabulary, students will examine the culture of Black life in the US. The workshop will explore African-American social dance traditions as a language for addressing current events and social justice. This workshop makes connections to African-American History, Current Events, Dance Education, Physical Education, and English Language Arts.
