Pillow Lab Artist | Live Music

The outdoor Henry J. Leir Stage hosts INSPIRIT, a dance company for a special one-night-only performance on July 19. This performance includes a “Choose What You Pay” ticketing option, with a suggested ticket price of $25.

Choreographer Christal Brown’s newest project, What We Ask of Flesh, was developed in a 2021 Pillow Lab, and combines soundscapes, installation art, and the dancers’ physicality to explore the stories that we carry in our bodies, and the capacity of human life. By harnessing the transcendent power of dance, INSPIRIT strives to create and sustain social change. Originally founded as a platform for female artists and choreographers, it now champions collaborative creativity and community engagement. Evolving from a performance ensemble to a collaborative methodology, INSPIRIT embodies the fusion of artistry and executive innovation, making dance a medium for unity and artistic growth.

Founding Artistic Director Christal Brown has an extensive history as a performer, appearing with Chuck Davis’ African-American Dance Ensemble, Andrea E. Woods/Souloworks, Gesel Mason Performance Projects, the Liz Lerman Dance Exchange, the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company, and Urban Bush Women.
