Liberation, community responsibility, issues of spirituality, human struggle...in the world of choreographer Ronald K. Brown, these serious topics are best explored through music, movement, spoken word, and sensory connections. Founded in Brooklyn in 1985, Evidence, Brown’s dance company, integrates traditional African dance with contemporary choreography and spoken word, resulting in a performance style described as “flexible, richly expressive and irresistibly kinetic” (The New York Times). Brown uses movement to reinforce the importance of community in African American culture and to acquaint audiences with the beauty of traditional African forms and rhythms. He is an advocate for the growth of the African American dance community and is instrumental in encouraging young dancers to choreograph and to develop careers in dance. The Equality of Night and Day: First Glimpse, a new piece by Brown and Evidence, will be performed on the mainstage.
