Ronald K. Brown/EVIDENCE (Contemp. Dance)

April 8 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Founded by Ronald K. Brown in 1985 and based in Brooklyn, N.Y., EVIDENCE
focuses on the seamless integration of traditional African dance with
contemporary choreography and spoken word. Through its work, EVIDENCE
provides a unique view of human struggles, tragedies and triumphs. Brown
uses movement as a way 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 has been instrumental in encouraging young
dancers to choreograph and to develop careers in dance.
While at the Weis Center, the ensemble will perform the works “Grace” and
“Mercy.”
