Camille A. Brown

Recorded at Jacob's Pillow: 
July 1, 2010

After early and extensive training in New York City, Camille A. Brown received her B.F.A. in Dance from the North Carolina School of the Arts. She enjoyed a long-lasting professional association with Ronald K. Brown/Evidence from 2001 to 2007, though the two Browns are not related. Her choreography has received extraordinary recognition for a young artist, and in 2006 she became the first woman to receive the Princess Grace Award in Choreography. Since then, she has created works for companies across the country, including two commissions for the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. Her company has conducted a Creative Development Residency at Jacob's Pillow, and their debut engagement in 2010 included two world premieres. The following year, she collaborated with Kyle Abraham on a unique Pillow presentation known as Kyle and Camille.
