A really interesting troupe is at the American Dance Festival this week, with a program that repeats again tonight, July 11, in Reynolds Theater. Camille A. Brown & Dancers perform Brown’s work, Mr. TOL E. RAncE, with the verve and honesty that the sharply intelligent, dynamic work deserves. But then they want to talk about it, causing, for this viewer, all the accumulated energy and aesthetic excitement to drain quickly away. I recommend it for the dancing, but suggest slipping out before the “dialogue.” Read my full review on cvnc.org here. Viewers who saw Kyle Abraham/Abraham in Motion will enjoy contrasting his work with Brown’s.
