University Dancers celebrates thirty-five years of engaging dance with their annual concert that brings to the University of Richmond the work of innovative choreographers Charlotte Boye-Christensen, Camille A. Brown, and Sean Aaron Carmon. These artist residencies are supported in part, by the Tucker- Boatwright Festival of Literature and the Arts (Dancing Histories: This Ground), hosted by the Department of Theatre & Dance. Salt Lake Citybased choreographer Charlotte Boye-Christensen’s collaborative work challenges perceptions of what defines dance, while not rejecting tradition. Boye-Christensen is the founder of NOW-ID, an interdisciplinary contemporary performance company known for its site-specific work and its commitment to inventing unique forms. Camille A. Brown’s critically acclaimed choreography has been seen in concert venues, on Broadway, and on television. Following the success of his 2018 premiere for University Dancers, Sean Aaron Carmon returns to Richmond to create a new work. Formerly an artist with the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Carmon is an accomplished dancer and choreographer who currently performs in Disney’s The Lion King.
