Grace Farms, Sanctuary

Join us as our Arts Initiative continues a year-long investigation of joy with artists and other collaborators working across a diverse range of disciplines and fields. Moderated by Arts Initiative Director Kenyon Victor Adams, the evening features contributions from celebrated essayist Garnette Cadogan and performances from award-winning choreographer and dancer Camille A. Brown with dancers Maleek Washington and Timothy Edwards.

This program is presented as part of the Foundation’s Practicing series, which since 2015 has convened interdisciplinary workshops to explore empathy, awe, silence, and joy.

 

About Camille A. Brown

Camille A. Brown is a prolific Black female choreographer reclaiming the cultural narrative of African American identity. Her bold work taps into both ancestral stories and contemporary culture to capture a range of deeply personal experiences. Ms. Brown is a four-time Princess Grace Award winner, a Ford Foundation Art of Change Fellow, Jacob’s Pillow Dance Award winner, Guggenheim Fellowship recipient, and TED Fellow, among others. Her work has been commissioned by the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Broadway theaters, and other prominent institutions.

Ms. Brown is the Choreographer for the Emmy Award Winning special, “Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert” and is the Choreographer for The Tony Award Winning Revival of “Once On This Island” on Broadway. For her work on this show, she also received Outer Critics Circle, Drama Desk, and Chita Rivera award nominations. For her choreography on “BELLA: An American Tall Tale”, Ms. Brown received an AUDELCO award and Lucille Lortel nomination.

 

About Garnette Cadogan

Garnette Cadogan is an essayist. His current research explores the promise and perils of urban life, the vitality and inequality of cities, and the challenges of pluralism. He writes about culture and the arts for various publications, and, in Fall 2017, was included in a list of 29 writers from around the world who “represent the future of new writing.”

He is a Martin Luther King Jr. Visiting Scholar (2017-2018) at the Department of Urban Studies and Planning at MIT, and is a Visiting Scholar at the Institute for Public Knowledge at New York University. The editor-at-large of Non-Stop Metropolis: A New York City Atlas (co-edited by Rebecca Solnit and Joshua Jelly-Schapiro), he is at work on a book on walking.
