Using Afro-Caribbean and modern dance movement styles, Ronald K. Brown creates pieces that are both artistically and emotionally touching. The company will perform three works, including one of Brown’s most beloved works, “Grace”, and his newest works, “Mercy”. Originally choreographed for the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre in 1999, “Grace” became a part of the EVIDENCE repertory in 2003. Grace weaves the story of a Goddess’ journey to Earth to spread grace among humans, ultimately welcoming them to heaven. “Ron Brown’s Grace connects us to our ancient, ancestral heartbeat. He carries that scintilla of beginning-of-time memory that dwells within us, which we forget belongs to us.” - Judith Jamison (Past Artistic Director of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater).
“Astounding, something to be sensed as well as seen” – The New
