Ronald K. Brown & Evidence to Present World Premiere at The Joyce Theater, 6/3-8
Ronald K. Brown and Evidence, A Dance Company return for its annual New York season at the Joyce Theater, June 3-8, 2014. The exciting week-long run includes 2 programs. Program A features the world premiere of The Subtle One danced to a suite by Jason Moran, jazz pianist, composer and Kennedy Center's Artistic Director for Jazz. Program B offers classic repertory including a revival of Ebony Magazine to a Village.
Ronald K. Brown and his company Evidence gear up to showcase its high-energy performances that merge African, ballet, social dance, and Brown's unique vocabulary. Most recently, Ronald K. Brown partnered with The Joyce Theater and BAM on an arts engagement initiative between Cuba and the USA; the result of which, Por Que Sigues (Why You Follow), a newly commissioned work for Cuba's MalPaso Dance Company, will be performed at the Joyce in late May. Brown has also continued his work with The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess and last summer, his "Four Corners" for the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater opened to critical acclaim. This year, Ronald K. Brown and Evidence continued to deepen their Brooklyn roots by opening the inaugural season of BRIC Arts | Media House (BRIC House) and moving the Evidence company headquarters and rehearsal space from 80 Hanson in Ft. Greene to the Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation.
