Unit 5

Led by Professor Bory, this unit explored dance as an art form and an ephemeral performance. This post is a response to the show, Black Girl Linguistic Play which we had the opportunity to see in person.

Black Girl Linguistic Play: Camille A. Brown and Dancers

! The work is an ephemeral moment of young black girls playing and growing up free of the stereotypes that white supremacy enforces.

Does a linguistic play experimenting with sound and movement translate Camille’s experiences from youth more effectively than words?
