Ronald K. Brown/EVIDENCE
with Arturo O’Farrill Ensemble
Ronald K. Brown/EVIDENCE has moved audiences for more than 30 years, praised for a “sophisticated amalgam of Afrocentric movement and modern dance” that often makes “spirituality…something vibrant and transformative” (Los Angeles Times). Brown’s exquisitely crafted blend of African, modern, Caribbean, and social dance styles has led to the creation of recent works like the soulful and uplifting New Conversations: Iron Meets Water which the company performs accompanied by live Afro-Cuban jazz music courtesy of Grammy-winner Arturo O’Farrill.
This show is part of our Windows series and is accompanied by a preshow event and postconcert conversation. Learn more about the series.
