651 ARTS presents: Mr TOL E. RAncE

Dec 6, 2013 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

| 20, 15
LIU TOL

Inspired by Mel Watkins’ book, On The Real Side, Spike Lee’s controversial movie, Bamboozled, and Dave Chappelle’s “Dancing vs. Shuffling” analogy, this evening-length dance theater work celebrates African-American humor, while examining “the mask” of survival, the “double consciousness” (W.E.B. DuBois), of the black performer throughout history, and the stereotypical roles dominating current popular Black culture.

Known for high theatricality, gutsy moves, and virtuosic musicality, Camille A. Brown & Dancers soar through history like a whirlwind, with Mr. Tol E. RAncE. The company’s work explores typical, real-life situations, ranging from literal relationships to more complex themes, with an eye on the past and present.

Show dates & times: Friday, 12/6 & 12/7 @ 7:30PM

Tickets: $20; $15 students and seniors with ID
