Camille A. Brown's Mr. Tol E. RAncE Set for Lincoln Center Out of Doors Tonight

Camille A. Brown and Dancers, recognized for its visceral movement and unflinching approach to comedic and controversial themes, announces the return of Camille A. Brown's acclaimed Mr. TOL E. RAncE at Lincoln Center Out of Doors tonight, August 2 at 7:00 p.m.

Mr. TOL E. RAncE (2013) embodies themes of American history as it celebrates African-American humor and masterfully intertwines comedy, live animation, theater and explosive dance, to examine minstrelsy in its past and even present forms. The piece sheds light on what happens to the human spirit behind the mask, creating a universal dialogue about perception and its influence on all races. The work is heavily influenced by Spike Lee's film Bamboozled as well as Mel Watkins' book "On The Real Side" and Dave Chappelle's "dancing vs. shuffling" analogy. Brown brought in dramaturges Talvin Wilks and Kamilah Forbes as well as theater coach J. Michael Kinsey to assist in the creation of this vibrant and poignant evening length work. The last 30-mins of the performance engages the audience in a conversation, lead by choreographer Camille A. Brown and Kamilah Forbes.
