Jemison Investment Co., Inc. Dance Series Ronald K. Brown's EVIDENCE
“…There is his agile use of stillness that subtly brushes the surface of raw emotions. And there is the undeniable way his propulsive movement crosses beyond the stage. Yes, this is the rare choreographer who makes you want to get up and dance.” – The New York Times
March: From his larger work Lessons, Ron K. Brown brings us March, an extraordinary duet set to a speech by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. that speaks to the value of a man. The movement embodies the sentiment of the text to illustrate a physical story of perseverance, dignity, and collective strength and care-taking.
On Earth Together: Premiering in 2011, On Earth Together is inspired by and set to the music of Stevie Wonder. The piece takes its name from Wonder’s moving ballad, ‘You and I’ and is a study in compassion and relationships, not just between individuals but between individuals and the world around them.
