Too often, Black performance artists are required to train and work both within a white western aesthetic and within white-centric producing structures. Even when the work addresses relevant Black topics and is shared with a predominantly African American audience, current engagement methods are not sufficient to address racial trauma in meaningful and impactful ways. Brownbody will create curriculum, training, and meaningful experiences that Black performance artists can use with fellow artists, or with audiences/engaged communities, to create supportive spaces for acknowledging, addressing, and healing.
