Founded in 2006, the company performs locally and across the world, inviting audiences into stories and dialogues about race, culture, and identity.

Camille A. Brown is a prolific Black female choreographer, who is reclaiming the cultural narratives of African American identity. Her bold work taps into both ancestral stories and contemporary culture to capture a range of deeply personal experiences. As Artistic Director of CABD, Ms. Brown strives to instill curiosity and reflection in diverse audiences through her emotionally raw and thought-provoking work.
