Ronald K Brown/EVIDENCE

April 30, 2020 Des Moines Civic Center

Praised by The New York Times as “one of the most profound choreographers of his modern dance generation,” Ronald K. Brown blends African, modern, ballet and social dance styles to tell stories that illuminate fundamental aspects of the human experience. Founded and based in Brooklyn, New York in 1985, EVIDENCE focuses on the seamless fusion of traditional African dance with contemporary choreography and spoken word. This work provides a unique view of human struggles, tragedies, and triumphs. Brown uses movement as a way to reinforce the importance of community in African American culture and to acquaint audiences with the beauty of traditional African forms and rhythms. He is an advocate for the growth of dance and is instrumental in encouraging young dancers to choreograph and to develop careers in dance.
