Camille A. Brown & Dancers

 

Performed in UMS’s 2018/19 season, Camille A. Brown & Dancers’ ink examines the culture of Black life that is often appropriated, rewritten, or silenced. This upcoming live screening will be followed by a live Q & A on Zoom with members of the company.

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. In this live digital screening, she presents ink, the final installation of the company’s trilogy built on the common theme of identity. This work was part of UMS’s 2018/19 Season.

ink celebrates the rituals, gestural vocabulary and traditions that remain ingrained within the lineage of the African Diaspora, from generation to generation. 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.

This digital screening is a co-presentation with The Arts Center at NYU Abu Dhabi.
