The LA Times reports that Black Girl: Linguistic Play, which opens in LA as part of a ten-city tour, uses Double Dutch and other games to "explore history and culture."
The show is described as such: "Winner of a Bessie Award and a Doris Duke Artist Award, choreographer Camille A. Brown and her company perform a work which reveals the complexity of carving out a self-defined identity as a Black female in urban American culture. Embodying a strong sense of storytelling and theatricality with a mix of African-American dance vernacular including social dancing, double dutch, steppin’, tap, Juba, ring shout, and gesture, Black Girl: Linguistic Play connects history with contemporary culture in a dialogue and reflection on meaning, understanding and relevancy."
The cast includes Brown, Cat Foster, Beatrice Capote, Fana Fraser, Yusha-Marie Sorzano and Mora-Amina Parker.
