For over 30 years, Ronald K. Brown / EVIDENCE has deeply moved audiences worldwide with masterfully created dances that are “richly expressive and endlessly kinetic” (The New York Times), performed by superbly articulate dancers. “No major choreographer has worked harder to bring spiritual awareness to the human heart than Ronald K. Brown. His dances concern our struggle to find love and connection, where compassion alone can ease the grueling physical journey of life” (The Washington Post). Following their sold out performances in 2017, the company returns to New Orleans with a program of works including Brown’s latest dance, the “Equality of Night and Day,” called “a quietly stunning work of art” (The Boston Globe) that features an original score by acclaimed jazz pioneer Jason Moran, set to spoken word by Angela Davis. In the wildly popular “Grace,” originally choreographed in 1999 for Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and now considered a masterpiece in the Ailey repertory, Brown sets his signature style to the music of Duke Ellington, Roy Davis Jr., Fela Kuti, Jimmy McPhail, and Jennifer Holliday. “Breathtaking and life-sustaining and hopeful” boasts The Boston Globe.

This presentation of Ronald K. Brown / EVIDENCE is made possible by a grant from the New England Foundation for the Arts.
