BROWN BEAUTIFUL explores an understanding of identity, outward versus inward manifestations of said identity, and the ways I personally have negotiated these as they relate to my sense of self and self-worth. Over the course of the piece, the work moves from rejection to acceptance, a relationship that is reinforced through the intermingling of opposing materials and the dialectical relationship between the actors and computer generated graphics. For more information about the piece, please refer to the program notes section of the score.
The piece is presented in five movements, time stamps which can be found in the YouTube description. Please advise that the video features flashing imagery.
