KU Presents! Evidence, A Dance Company performs tonight at 7:30 p.m. in Schaeffer Auditorium. Praised by The New York Times as "one of the most profound choreographers of his modern dance generation," artistic director Ronald K. Brown blends African, modern, ballet and social dance styles to tell stories that illuminate aspects of the human experience. Through dance, music, movement, and storytelling they provide powerful connections to history and tradition leading deeper into issues of spirituality, community responsibility and liberation.
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.
Evidence now tours to some 30 communities in the United States annually. It has also traveled overseas to Cuba, Brazil, England, Ireland, France, Greece, Hungary, Mexico and Senegal. In addition to celebrating its 25th anniversary starting in 2010. Evidence performed at the Vancouver International Dance Festival in conjunction with the 2010 Olympic Winter Games.
