Award winning choreographer Camille A. Brown is the recipient of numerous awards including the Princess Grace Award. She has choreographed works for many companies such as Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Philadanco and Ballet Memphis. Her company, Camille A. Brown & Dancers is famed for its high theatricality, gutsy moves and virtuosic musicality leading the The New York Times to claim, “Ms. Brown seamlessly melds modern, hip-hop and West African dance.” The company excels at the exploration of real life situations ranging from literal relationships to more complex themes with an eye on the past and present.
MoralesDance is a throwback to the days of classical modern dance based on the aesthetics of choreographer and artistic director, Tony Morales. A mixture of classical modern techniques lends the company a fluid yet strong air as seen in the choreography of several of the company’s repertory pieces. For their performance, MoralesDance will present four diverse works, from the light Piano Pieces, to the emotional exploration of a shattered family in Amor Brutal, to a celebration of the human spirit in Scenes and Ablution, which the New York Times has called, “a stormy and powerful solo.”
