LIVE MUSIC

Ronald K. Brown/EVIDENCE brings the soulful, uplifting new work, New Conversations, marked by Brown’s iconic blend of African, Caribbean, and contemporary choreography and set to Afro-Cuban jazz music by GRAMMY Award-winning musician Arturo O’Farrill, performed live by O’Farrill and the jazz ensemble Resist. Ronald K. Brown/EVIDENCE has deeply moved audiences for over 30 years, praised for a “sophisticated amalgam of Afrocentric movement and modern dance” that often makes “spirituality...something vibrant and transformative” (Los Angeles Times).

The company also performs Come Ye, inspired by the music and sociopolitical legacies of artist/activists Nina Simone and Fela Kuti, and Dancing Spirit, originally choreographed for Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater in tribute to Kennedy Center Honoree Judith Jamison. Performed with live music for the first time, New Conversations was commissioned by long-time Pillow supporters The Charles and Joan Gross Family Foundation and was created in part during a residency at Jacob’s Pillow. Tickets start at $45.
