ink: Camille A. Brown & Dancers

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 one-night-only presentation, she presents ink, the final installation of the company’s trilogy built on the common theme of 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.
