Camille A. Brown’s BLACK GIRL: Linguistic Play draws on the games little girls play to tell a story of black female empowerment. One of the most important American choreographers of our time, 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, Bessie Award winner and Tony Award nominee is known for imaginative works that address issues of identity and social justice.




A tour de force.
