Innovative choreographer Camille A. Brown’s BLACK GIRL: Linguistic Play draws on the games little girls play to tell a story of black female empowerment. Brown uses African-American vernacular forms — social dancing, Double Dutch, hand-clapping games, ring shout — to evoke the self-discovery and playfulness of childhood in a work The New York Times calls “by turns, clever and tender.” Brown, a 2016 Guggenheim Fellow, has created dances for Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and Urban Bush Women and is known for imaginative works that address issues of identity and social justice.


Camille A. Brown will be in residence at the UW as a Mellon Creative Research Fellow.


Watching Camille A. Brown dance in person for the first time is like observing a hummingbird in nature…Brown is a storyteller, with many tales to tell.
