PITTSBURGH CURRENT- Dance Work ‘Ink’ Explores Black Life And Black Identity At August Wilson Cultural Center

The third work in her trilogy on black identity, Camille A. Brown’s ink (2017) follows in the dance steps of previous works Mr. TOL E. RAncE (2012), about minstrelsy and BLACK GIRL: Linguistic Play (2015), about Black womanhood. The hourlong dance-theater piece will be performed by Brown’s New York-based Camille A. Brown & Dancers, March 9 and 10 at Downtown’s August Wilson Cultural Center.

Brown, whose career has skyrocketed recently serving as choreographer for the Emmy Award-winning television special, Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert and The Tony Award-winning revival of Once On This Island on Broadway, is also a four-time Princess Grace award winner and a Guggenheim Fellowship recipient.
