Camille A. Brown is a prolific choreographer who has earned multiple accolades and awards for her daring works. Her latest work, Black Girl, is a multimedia depiction of the complexities of carving out a positive identity as a black female in urban American culture. Combining history and musicology with fantastical imagery from Alice in Wonderland, this work offers a grand narrative reflecting on feminism, patriarchy, and how women navigate within this world. Middlebury’s performances during women’s history month also include works by three female emerging choreographers. Sponsored by thePerforming Arts SeriesDance Program, and Committee on the Arts. Camille A. Brown and Dancers is a recipient of the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project Touring Award, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the Andrew W.
