Ronald K. Brown/EVIDENCE seamlessly blends traditional African dance with contemporary choreography, creating a “magnificently textured style, which shifts from earthy, raw-powered movement to jumps that send dancers sailing into the air like spirits." (The New York Times). The program includes a world premiere duet for Ronald K. Brown and Arcell Cabuag in celebration of Associate Artistic Director Cabuag's 20th year with the company. Other highlights: the company premiere of Dancing Spirit, commissioned by the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Come Ye, March, and the one-night-only revival of Upside Down, an excerpt from Brown’s evening-length work, Destiny, on opening night.
This event is part of Carnegie Hall’s The ’60s: The Years that Changed America festival.
