Evidence - A Dance Company Ronald K Brown Photo credit - Rachel Papo
Choreographer-dancer Ronald K Brown is celebrated for his powerful, impassioned and distinct fusion of African dance with spoken word, social dance styles, ballet and contemporary dance.
Brooklyn-based Evidence presents a thrilling triple bill of his works, including the passionate Grace, originally created for the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre and premiered to great acclaim, and Order My Steps, set to the music of Terry Riley, the Kronos Quartet and Bob Marley.
One Shot: First Glance is an exuberant excerpt of a new work inspired and featuring photographs by noted African-American photo journalist Charles 'Tennie' Harris, renowned for taking his stunning pictures in just one shot, capturing a lifetime legacy of dignity and hope.
'The choreographer Ronald K Brown is something of an archaeologist. In his dances - poetic structures of great subtlety and force - there is a sense of a singular artist digging for a forgotten treasure' (New York Times).
