Description: Known for high theatricality, gutsy moves, and virtuosic musicality, Camille A. Brown and Dancers utilize modern, hip-hop, African-American social dances, ballet, and tap, to tell stories that connect history with contemporary culture. Reclaiming African-American narratives by showcasing their authenticity, “ink” celebrates the rituals, gestural vocabulary, and traditions that remain (from generation to generation) ingrained within the lineage of the African Diaspora. This 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” seeks to highlight the space of pedestrian interactions as grounds for individuals and communities to find liberation and access their power.
