I was so happy to get an email from choreographer Camille A. Brown. I’m such a fan of her work in the recent revival of Once On This Island, Jesus Christ Superstar Live, the currently running Choir Boy, and a solo performance a few years ago. Such an amazing creator and storyteller!
Camille’s longtime friend and company manager of her dance company, Indira Goodwine, is departing her position to join another venture, and Camille wanted to commission a piece to celebrate their time together. She wanted the piece to burst with references to their roots in Jamaica, Queens, sending me photos of iconic locations and street art and jewelry. Movement, color, joy! I think our collaboration resulted in something pretty great. And from what I hear, Indira loved it.
