The Alabama Dance Festival presents Ronald K. Brown's EVIDENCE, A DANCE COMPANY on January 28, 8:00 pm at the Leslie S. Wright Fine Arts Center. The pre-concert talk, Inside the Dance begins at 7:35 pm.
Deeply rooted in the proud, rich, and sometimes painful and controversial issues of African and African-American cultural identity, Ronald K. Brown, Artistic Director of EVIDENCE, A DANCE COMPANY, creates dances that illustrate through movement, music, and text his expression of the cultural and societal issues and history that have shaped us as a society and individuals. In his newest work, On Earth Together, inspired by the timeless music of Stevie Wonder, he sees the work “…as a commitment to making the world a better place: a loving and compassionate place to celebrate a world-view."
Other pieces included on the EVIDENCE program are Ronald K. Brown’s Ebony Magazine: To a Village (1996), originally commissioned and performed by Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Ensemble, and Incidents (1998), a work created from a collection of images inspired by several historical texts, including Linda Brent’s Incident in the Life of a Slave Girl.
