Dance Split Bill with Camille A. Brown and Makeda Thomas
***Tickets are still available at the box office***
Camille A. Browns choreography is a tour de force and reveals an arresting individuality as both choreographer and performer. Ms. Brown has received commissions from Hubbard Street II, Urban Bush Women, Ailey II, among others. She is a dancer in the premiere of Peaches, Plums, and Pomegranates, a new work by celebrated choreographer Dianne McIntyre and legendary jazz artist Olu Dara. Most recently, Camille was a member of Ronald K. Brown/Evidence, a guest with Renni Harris/Puremovement and a featured dancer in the BET Jazz documentary on Blueprint of A Lady- a collaboration with Brown and Grammy nominated Jazz vocalist Nnenna Freelon.
Makeda Thomas choreographs works that cross boundaries between contemporary modern and traditional dance. FreshWater takes its title from the Trinidadian term for someone who talks, dresses or acts American without having gone overseas (crossing salt water). FreshWater is being created in the midst of returning home to Trinidad after 20 years living abroad. It is a deeply personal work - set in the stage of a mystical, multilayered culture of compelling depth of breadth and scope. A dance between Memory and Reality, FreshWater is a work about family, legacy and continuity; tradition and heritage; about the fragility of life and the fragility of culture.
