Propelled by the live rhythms and sounds of traditional African and handmade instruments, Camille A. Brown’s ink celebrates the rituals, gestures, and traditions of the African diaspora. Highlighting themes of brotherhood, Black love, community, and resilience, the work seeks to reclaim African American narratives, and is the final installment of Brown’s dance theater trilogy about identity.
Each performance of “ink” will conclude with “The Dialogue,” a conversation moderated by CABD Company Members Timothy Edwards and Maleek Washington.
Since 2012, “The Dialogue” has become a signature of Camille A. Brown & Dancers performance experience that provides an opportunity for open discussion between the artists and audience about the work of the company. This exchange is a verbal extension of the work that creates a safe space for artists and audience members to decompress together, exchanging immediate thoughts and reactions.
The presentation of Camille A. Brown & Dancers was made possible by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
