ABOUT THE PROJECT
Camille A. Brown & Dancers will premiere ink – the final installation of the company’s dance theatre trilogy about culture, race and identity – following the Bessie Award Winning, “Mr. TOL E. RAncE” (2012) and Bessie Nominated, “BLACK GIRL: Linguistic Play” (2015). From the Abolitionist movement to the Civil Rights struggle, to The Black Power Movement and Hip-Hop’s emergence, ink highlights the space of pedestrian interactions as grounds for individuals and communities to find liberation and access their power. Reclaiming African-American narratives by showcasing their authenticity, ink celebrates the rituals, gestural vocabulary, and traditions embedded within the African Diaspora.
