The event is free for UNCSA students, faculty and staff (a ticket is required); $10 for alumni and non-UNCSA students; and $15 for the general public.
Brown is a prolific choreographer who has achieved multiple accolades and awards for her daring works. She is a five-time Princess Grace Award winner, and recipient of a Bessie Award, Ford Foundation Art of Change Fellowship, Jacob’s Pillow Dance Award, Doris Duke Award and a TED fellowship. With her company, Camille A. Brown & Dancers, she invites audiences around the world into stories and dialogues about race, culture and identity.
Celebrated as a gifted and innovative new voice in American dance, Lane pushes the boundaries of contemporary dance through choreography that "strips labels and shows humanity." He has choreographed for Ailey II, Dallas Black Dance Theatre and the Atlanta Ballet, where he was the first black, independent, Atlanta-based choreographer to be commissioned. He is currently a member of Camille A. Brown & Dancers.
