From Valerie Gladstone in the Boston Globe:
His dances are drawn from spiritual voyages
When Ronald K. Brown established his company, Evidence, in Brooklyn in 1985 , he was only 19, a virtuosic and charismatic dancer. He’d performed with the Jennifer Muller Company, but he wanted to create his own works, not dance those of others.
Now one of America’s top choreographers, Brown, 40, creates dances in a distinctive high-energy style, blending influences from African, Caribbean, and modern dance as well as ballet and hip-hop.
