Cal Performances

Performance Dates: Friday, December 8, 8pm Saturday, December 9, 8pm Sunday, December 10, 3pm Camille A. Brown, choreographer Scott Patterson, composer and piano Robin Bramlett, composer and electric bass Innovative choreographer Camille A. Brown's BLACK GIRL: Linguistic Play draws on the games little girls play to tell a story of black female empowerment. Brown uses African-American vernacular forms--social dancing, Double Dutch, hand-clapping games, ring shout--to explore the self-discovery and playfulness of childhood in a work The New York Times called "by turns, clever and tender." Brown, a 2016 Guggenheim Fellow, has created dances for Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and Urban Bush Women and is known for imaginative works that address issues of identity and social justice. #BerkeleyRADICAL #JoiningGenerations
