Diana Wortham Theatre presents Ronald K. Brown and his award-winning dance company, EVIDENCE, Friday & Saturday, November 10 & 11, 2017 at 8:00 p.m. at Diana Wortham Theatre in downtown Asheville.
The New York Times calls Brown one of the most profound choreographers of modern dance, noting that his “meshing of African and modern dance is like an electrical charge.”
Known for his emotive works that exude love and joy, Brown says, “I hope that when people see the work, their spirits are lifted,”– a goal he has soundly achieved based on the high demand for his choreography and his company.
The company’s performances are a part of a three-day overall residency by Ronald K. Brown/EVIDENCE: A Dance Company in Asheville that includes a special daytime show for children/students, a free community dance workshop, a master class for dance students, and pre-performance discussions prior to the evening performances.
Bring The Kids: For kids, students, and families, Ronald K. Brown/EVIDENCE: A Dance Company presents a special daytime show, Friday, November 10 at 10:00 a.m. Buncombe County and Asheville City Schools are closed this day, so parents, grandparents, guardians, after-school program directors, and community group leaders are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to treat students/children with a trip to see live dance performance.
