About

ink by Camille A. Brown & Dancers
Nov 2, 8pm & Nov 3, 2pm

Co-Presented with MASS MoCA

ink, the final installation of Jacob’s Pillow Dance Award-winning choreographer Camille A. Brown’s trilogy about identity (along with Mr. TOL E. RAncE and BLACK GIRL: Linguistic Play), celebrates the rituals, gestural vocabulary, and traditions that remain ingrained within the lineage of the African Diaspora. Reclaiming African-American narratives by examining the culture of black life that is often appropriated, rewritten, or silenced—the choreography is an amalgamation of African-American social dance, African, tap, jazz, modern, and hip-hop styles, accompanied by a smoking-hot live band that elides elements of blues, hip-hop, jazz, and swing.
