25 to Watch 2018: Yeman Brown

It's no wonder Yeman Brown was nominated for a 2017 Outstanding Performer Bessie for his performance in Reggie Wilson's Citizen. Amidst the marathon of broken-up solos, Brown flies through the lightning-fast choreography. His movement is both gestural and athletic—not to mention deeply poetic—and is driven by a particular force which exudes a matter-of-fact command of the stage.

The Tallahasse native has also performed featured roles for Stephanie Batten Bland, Kristin Sudeikis, Jawole Willa Jo Zollar, Ralph Lemon and Raja Feather Kelly. Brown will be bringing his vigor to North Carolina troupe OM grown dancers this spring, adding the role of choreographer to his resumé and proving he is truly navigating his own path.
