Camille A. Brown and Dancers are the 2016 Jacob’s Pillow Award winner which is one of dances highest honors. Brown is a dancer and choreographer like no other. She created the world in dance that connects history with contemporary culture.  In our opinion, while we watch the performance, we see the history reflect what it currently happening in our culture right now.   Come see why Camille A. Brown and Dancers is the only thing that you should be doing this Thursday and Friday night at 8 pm.

 

Trip Out continues to spread the news about entertainment and the talent behind each creation. Camille A. Brown is a force in the dance world but also a visionary in the black culture. She uses dance to tell African-American history and the current culture of this generation. Yesterday, today, tomorrow, and our future is an evolution and Brown creates this constant change in her choreographed masterpieces. Camille A. Brown and Dancers is a must-see, it’s the staple of Black History and culture that everyone must witness.

Camille A. Brown and Dancers’ Asheville performance is made possible by Arthur J. Fryar Charitable Fund through the Community Foundation of Western North Carolina. Also, funded in part by the grant from South Arts in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and the North Carolina Arts Council. Without, funded in part by the Dance Touring Initiative, a multi-year project to enhance the presentation of modern dance and contemporary ballet for presenters and audiences, the Asheville performance would not be possible.

 

Join us starting tomorrow, Thursday, February 16th at 8 pm at the Diana Wortham Theatre to see the performance that uses rhythms and sounds of traditional African instruments as its center, travels through time with elements of Blues, Hip-Hop, Jazz, and Swing; and “New Second Line” – which is dedicated to the spirit and culture of New Orleans.
