Recognized for its introspective approach to cultural themes through visceral movement and socio-political dialogues, Camille A. Brown & Dancers soar through history like a whirlwind. Embodying a strong sense of storytelling, the company uses theatricality and the aesthetics of Modern, Hip hop, African, Ballet, and Tap, to tell stories that connect history with contemporary culture.
Making a personal claim on history through the lens of a modern Black female perspective, Camille A. Brown leads her dancers through excavations of ancestral stories, both timeless and traditional. The work is strongly character based, expressing each choreographic topic by building from little moments to model a filmic sensibility. Theater, poetry, visual art and music of all genres merge to inject each performance with energy and urgency. Camille A. Brown is a Ford Foundation Art of Change Fellow and choreographed JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR LIVE IN CONCERT ON NBC. Her choreography has been seen locally in The Dallas Theater Center’s productions of Stagger Lee and Bella: An American Tall Tale.
The Company has performed in venues both nationally and internationally, including The Joyce Theater, Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, Lincoln Center Out of Doors, The Yard, American Dance Festival, Bates Dance Festival, New York City Center’s Fall for Dance Festival, The Egg, The Kravis Center, White Bird and Belfast Festival at Queen’s (Belfast, Ireland).
