February 13th
8:00pm
Power Center

A natural storyteller, Camille A. Brown has stepped forward with her exuberant choreography and restless curiosity to become a leading voice in contemporary American dance. Her latest work, Black Girl–Linguistic Play, explores female identity and elevates playground games into empowerment. The work reveals the complexity of carving out a self-defined identity as a Black female in an urban American culture that is both racially and politically charged. Original compositions by collaborators Tracy Wormworth and Scott Patterson are performed live and encompass the rhythmic play of African-American rooted steppin’, Double Dutch, and Juba. The performance culminates with a moderated dialogue, allowing audience members to engage with the artists onstage. ums - See more at: http://ums.org/performance/camille-a-brown-dancers/#sthash.lcHIXDzs.dpuf
