Black Girl: Linguistic Play

Camille A. Brown & Dancers

Award-winning choreographer Camille A. Brown uses the rhythmic play of social dance, double dutch, steppin’, tap, and live original music to represent a nuanced spectrum of black womanhood in a racially and politically charged world. From play to protest, the performers come into their identities—from childhood innocence, to girlhood self-awareness, to maturity—all the while shaped by the bonds of sisterhood.
