From Theodore Bale in the Boston Herald: ‘Come Ye’ presents a thoughtful protest
If you oppose the war we’re in right now, do you also oppose the young Americans who are overseas fighting in it?
That’s a question renowned choreographer Ronald K. Brown contemplated when he was making his most recent dance, “Come Ye,” which is set to some provocative protest songs by Nina Simone and Fela Anikulapo Kuti. When Brown’s company Evidence makes its Cambridge debut tonight at the ZeroArrow Theatre in Harvard Square, “Come Ye” is certain to perplex some viewers and inspire others.
From Karen Campbell in the Boston Globe: Devoted to dance - Ronald K. Brown spreads his gospel with movement that crosses cultural borders
.... “If I could figure out a way to go to seminary and run a dance company at the same time, I would,” he says. “But I think what helps now is seeing the work we do as ministry. It’s not liturgical dance. We’re just sharing a message.”
Brown uses movement as a means of spiritual expression, and the dances that his award-winning company, Evidence, brings to Boston tonight spring from stories that reflect a journey toward liberation, acceptance, and healing.
