Camille A. Brown & Dancers (CABD) is a Bessie Award-winning, New York City-based dance company advancing the artistic vision of Camille A. Brown. Founded in 2006, the company performs locally and across the world, inviting audiences into stories and dialogues about race, culture and identity.
The work uses theatricality and the aesthetics of modern, hip hop, African, ballet and tap to tell stories that connect history with contemporary culture. Strongly character-based, it expresses each topic by building from little moments, modeling a filmic sensibility. Theatre, poetry, visual art and music of all genres merge to inject each performance with energy and urgency.
