Rachael Devecka Black Girl Linguistic Play Reflection

!) The moment that stood out to me the most was after the dance when one woman asked what stereotypes the dance represented. Ms. Brown’s response startled me: “Stereotypes are not welcome on this stage… it’s just about young girls playing.” I loved that approach, especially in contrast to Bill T. Jones’ work which was focused on destroying stereotypes by showing them.

?) Does Ms. Brown’s dance troupe ever perform the three parts of the trilogy together? (Are they meant to be seen together?)
