Camille A. Brown + Dancers Black Girl, Brandee Younger

Camille A. Brown performs at the Bandshell as part of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, presented in partnership with the Prospect Park Alliance. For the latest information, including weather updates, set times, seating configurations, and FAQs, please visit the BRIC website.

The propulsive, explosively intelligent choreographer CAMILLE A. BROWN creates work that is both viscerally and intellectually exciting. Her evening-length piece Black Girl: Linguistic Play explores black female identity through a series of dances “so elastic, so intricate that the sense of cadence and rhythm is as visual an experience as it is an aural one.” (NY Times) The evening begins with a set by the remarkable BRANDEE YOUNGER, “a harpist of rare prominence in jazz, building on an African-American legacy largely defined by Dorothy Ashby and Alice Coltrane.” (NY Times)

Gates open an hour before the performance unless otherwise noted, and all performances are rain or shine.
