Founded in 1985, the company focuses on the integration of traditional African dance with contemporary and spoken word to provide a unique view of struggles, tragedies, and triumphs of humanity.

For this special online program, the company has assembled a selection of solos and duets from their repertory including the luminous solo from Grace, Brown’s breakout piece performed first by the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater 20 years ago. The program also features Mercy, an ethereal movement meditation that seeks to guide our hearts, set to music by Meshell Ndegeocello; For You, a tribute to the incredible legacy and leadership of the late American Dance Festival co-creator Stephanie Reinhart; She is Here, a celebration of self–determination and perseverance of mothers and teachers who have inspired living with integrity; Palo y Machete, a solo work from One Shot inspired by the life and work of noted photographer Charles “Teenie” Harris who documented black life in Pittsburgh; and March, an extraordinary duet set to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s speech on the value of a man.

Ronald K. Brown said today, “The dancers and I are grateful for the generosity of The Joyce, Northrop, DANCECleveland, and Tri-C which make this performance possible – safely – during a global pandemic. It is an absolute blessing and true gift for EVIDENCE to share these works with audiences around the world.”
