Brown & Dancers: Double This, Juba That, An excerpt from the evening length work BLACK GIRL: Linguistic Play Sunday, January 20, 6:00pm Stone Gallery Double This, Juba That, the opening duet from the evening length work, BLACK GIRL: Linguistic Play, reveals the complexity of carving out a self-defined identity as a black female in urban American culture. Brown uses the rhythmic play of African-American dance vernacular including social dancing, double dutch, steppin’, tap, Juba, ring shout, and gesture as the black woman’s domain to evoke childhood memories of self-discovery. The performance is presented as part of the catalogue launch and closing reception for Alexandria Smith: A Litany for Survival.
