Camille A. Brown & Dancers present authentic performances that foster dialogue among audiences and local communities to instill a sense of curiosity and appreciation for the live arts experience in a social and aesthetic context.
Embodying a strong sense of storytelling, the company uses theatricality and the aesthetics of Modern, Hip hop, African, Ballet, and Tap, to tell stories that connect history with contemporary culture; on a journey for meaning, understanding and relevancy. Through our work we seek to provoke, engage, inspire, and develop a sphere of influence for cultural dialogue and reflection.
About Camille A. Brown & Dancers
Known for high theatricality, gutsy moves and virtuosic musicality, Camille A. Brown & Dancers soar through history like a whirlwind. The company’s work explores typical, real life situations ranging from literal relationships to more complex themes with an eye on the past and present. Making a personal claim on history, through the lens of a modern female perspective, Camille A. Brown leads her dancers through dazzling excavations of ancestral stories, both timeless and traditional, as well as immediate contemporary issues. The work is strongly character based, expressing whatever the topic is by building from little moments, modeling a filmic sensibility. Theater, poetry, visual art and music of all genres merge to inject each performance with energy and urgency.
