Founded by Ronald K. Brown, EVIDENCE focuses on the seamless integration of traditional African dance with contemporary choreography and spoken word. 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. The program includes Open Door, a journey into Afro Cuban dance forms with music by Arturo O’Farrill’s Afro Latin Jazz Ensemble; the electrifying Upside Down; and The Equality of Night and Day, a poetic work examining concepts of balance and equity. 

His dances concern our struggle to find love and connection, where compassion alone can ease the grueling physical journey of life.
