SKATE TRUTH
TO POWER

An original repertory of
movement + sound + storytelling
in modern dance + figure skating + theater

Grounded in African diasporic perspectives, Brownbody’s mission is to build artistic experiences that disrupt biased narratives and prompt audiences to engage as active participants in the journey. Brownbody accomplishes this through a blend of modern dance, theater, social justice, and figure skating.

BROWNBODY FLASHES BACK TO FLASH FOWARD

How the past, present, and future converge in a performing-arts company like no other.

ABOUT BROWNBODY

Blending modern dance, theater, social justice and skating since 2007, Brownbody received its 501c3 status in 2013. Brownbody cultivates space to process and creates artistic work that offers honest and nuanced stories rooted in blackness.
Brownbody presents artistic work both on and off of the ice. Brownbody prioritizes representation and is fortunate to work with an all Black cast of professional skaters for its on ice artistic work.

Brownbody is supported by the United States Regional Arts Resilience Fund Phase 2, an initiative of Arts Midwest and its peer United States Regional Arts Organizations made possible by an anonymous donor.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.

Tracing Sacred Steps was made possible by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the Mellon Foundation.

Pay it Forward

Brownbody depends on the generous support of anyone and everyone that loves the arts and believes they’re an important part of our culture. So we’d be honored if you’d consider becoming a part of the Brownbody family by offering up a tax-deductible donation. Any amount is truly appreciated.
