The Yard and the Martha’s Vineyard African American Film Festival present Camille A. Brown and Dancers at the MV Performing Arts Center with “Mr. TOL E. RAncE,” Ms. Brown’s portrayal of the images of blacks in entertainment on Tuesday, August 5th at 7pm at the MV Performing Arts Center. The following week, as part of the company’s creative residency, the company will show excerpts of a new work-in-progress, “Black Girl.” Drawing on Harris-Perry’s Sister Citizen, the photography of Carrie Mae Weems, Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, and Daniel Silberberg’s Wonderland: The Zen of Alice, “Black Girl” depicts the complexities of carving out a positive identity as a Black female in urban American culture; a talk-back with the artists and influential members of the African American community and others will follow on Saturday, August 16th at The Yard.

Quoted from VCU:

“Removing the Mask: African American Stereotypes in Performance
Wednesday, September 3, 2014
Grace Street Theater, 7:00 PM FREE
A public panel hosted by VCU Dance featuring scholars and community leaders from the VCU and Richmond communities, this evening provides a prelude to the weekend performance of Camille A. Brown & Dancers’ Mr. TOL E. RAncE. Inspired by Mel Watkins’ book, On The Real Side: From Slavery to Chris Rock, Spike Lee’s controversial movie, Bamboozled, and Dave Chappelle’s dancing vs. shuffling analogy, Mr. TOL E. RAncE celebrates African-American humor, examines “the mask” of survival and the “double consciousness” (W.E.B. DuBois) of the black performer throughout history and the stereotypical roles dominating current popular Black culture.Waldean Nelson in TOL... PC_Christopher.Duggan_008
