Drawing inspiration from African dance with contemporary choreography and spoken word, the Evidence Dance Company blends styles ranging from Latin America, the Caribbean and Africa. You can see the impressive style on display SATURDAY (March 1) at the Orpheum Theater.
Founded in 1985 by New Yorker Ronald K. Brown, the group's work is more than dance – it’s kinetic storytelling. Theater, text and music – from classical to hip-hop – weave through Brown’s culturally significant and emotionally rich works. Brown has choreographed for many of the major American dance companies, including Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and Jennifer Muller/The Works. In 2012, Brown’s choreography for the Broadway revival of Porgy and Bess won the Astaire Award for “Outstanding Choreography for a Broadway Musical.”
