Ronald K Brown / EVIDENCE
FRIDAY, January 24, 2020 8:00pm
SATURDAY, January 25, 2020 8:00pm
Aronoff Center for the Arts, Cincinnati, Ohio

..”…Deep, spiritual seriousness. A sophisticated mastery of stage space. Music that makes you want to move. A vocabulary, drawn from many parts of the African diaspora, that Mr. Brown has developed into a personal language that’s flexible, richly expressive and irresistibly kinetic…” The New York Times

Contemporary Dance Theater will open the 2019-20 season with Ronald K Brown / EVIDENCE (NYC, New York) on January 24 and 25, 2020.  The concerts will feature works from Mr. Brown’s 34 year history of choreographing and directing his company.  

GRACE, originally created for the Alvin Ailey Company is celebrating its 20 year history and will be the centerpiece of this program.  GRACE, with music by Duke Ellington, Roy Davis, Jr, and Fela Anikulapo Kuti, presents the story of a Goddess’ journey to Earth, with angels as aides, to spread grace among humans.  The rest of the program will be decided and posted at a later time.

While Mr. Brown and his company are in Cincinnati, they will teach master classes, meet the community, and discuss with audiences what interests them in dance and the arts.

Q&A after the show
