Camille A. Brown’s choreography and dynamic performances have led her to receive a Bessie nomination for Best Performance in her work, The Evolution of a Secured Feminine, and a Best Choreography nomination from the Black Theater Arts Alliance for her debut work set on the Ailey company, The Groove To Nobody’s Business, and was among the first cohort of fellows for Ailey’s New Directions Choreography Lab. This year she won her second Bessie in the Outstanding Production category for Mr. TOL E. RAncE, her first evening-length. She is also a two-time Princess Grace Award recipient (Choreography & Works in Progress Residency), a two-time recipient of NEFA’s National Dance Project: Production Grant, the recipient of the 2014 Joyce Award with DANCECleveland, and more awards than there is space to list. Though presently on sabbatical to work in another project, one of our Dance Alums, Waldean Nelson (HC ’09) originated a role in Mr. TOL E. RAncE.
Come and see these amazing dancers in her complex, dynamic, award-winning work–her new work, Black Girl and excerpts from Mr. TOL E. RAncE . MASTER CLASS (int/adv modern) Thursday, December 4th 4:10, PEM STUDIO. Brown will also lead an Art and Activism Roundtable on Saturday, December 6th,11-12:30 Dorothy Vernon Room, Haffner.
