Ronald K. Brown and Evidence, A Dance Company to Celebrate 30th Anniversary at The Joyce Theater, 2/24-3/1

Ronald K. Brown and Evidence, A Dance Company celebrate 30 years at the Joyce Theater, February 24 - March 1. Ronald K. Brown and Evidence, A Dance Company will usher in its 30th year with a company premiere, New York premiere, live music and revivals of classic works. The week-long run features two programs. Program A highlights include the powerful classic Grace and The Subtle One, danced to a suite composed and performed live by Jason Moran. Moran, score composer for the Oscar-nominated film "Selma" and Kennedy Center's Artistic Director for Jazz, will be joined by his band, The Bandwagon. Program B highlights include the NewYork premiere of Through Time and Culture, a solo by Brown, along with the company premiere of Why You Follow/Por Que Sigues.

Ronald K. Brown has been a powerful force in the contemporary dance world since his company burst onto New York's downtown dance scene in 1985. Since those early days, Brown and his company have performed uptown, downtown and across the globe. Brown's ubiquitous master classes and workshops attract thousands of community students and dancers; many of whom consider him a mentor, as well as a teacher. His ethereal works and remarkable performance quality have touched the hearts of many. Brown's choreography has been installed in the repertoires of some of the country's most beloved dance companies. As an educator and community activist, he has used his work as a catalyst to discuss culture, religion, and societal issues. Brown's belief--that dance can heal and provide evidence of the human condition-is the driving force behind his 30 years of uninterrupted work. The 2015 Joyce season is a celebration of Ronald K. Brown, his work, and the imprint he has made on dance, theater and communities around the world.
