Brown returns to Wesleyan with the Connecticut premiere of “BLACK GIRL: Linguistic Play” (2015), which uses the rhythmic play of African-American dance vernacular–double dutch, steppin’, tap, Juba, ring shout, social dancing, and gesture–and privileges the black girl gaze to create a nuanced spectrum of black womanhood. With live music by pianist Scott Patterson and bassist Tracy Wormworth.
