“Camille A. Brown & Dancers performance of “Mr. TOL E. RAncE” had it all – heart, mind, soul, passion, full-out dancing and introspective solos.”The Herald-Sun

Two-time Princess Grace Award recipient, Camille A. Brown, a prolific choreographer who has achieved multiple accolades and awards for her daring works brings an evening-length dance theater work that celebrates African-American humor, examines “the mask” of survival and the “double consciousness” of the black performer throughout history and the stereotypical roles dominating current popular Black culture. Through comedy, animation, theater, soul-stirring live music and poignantly retrospective dance vocabulary, Mr. TOL E. RAncE speaks to the issue of tolerance- how much Black performers had to tolerate, and addresses forms of modern day minstrelsy we tolerate today.
