Alison Clancy’s Morning Time, Featuring The Ghost

September 30, 2022

Supernatural and hypnotic, “Morning Time” combines the creativity of musician and dancer Alison Clancy, bruk up dancer Albert Esquilin Jr., aka The Ghost, and director Max Louis Miller. Known for his signature step, “The Ghostwalk,” Esquilin specializes in bruk up, a style which draws on Jamaican dancehall and hip-hop forms. After a childhood accident, he grew up wearing a leg brace but didn’t let the challenge deter his dance career—similar to the style’s founder, George “Bruk Up” Adams, who had a childhood bone infection. The mystical sound of “Morning Time” is embodied by Esquilin’s fluid yet precise movement, which features his own stylistic creation called “possession.”
