Celebrating its 35th anniversary, Ronald K. Brown/EVIDENCE's
body of work blends contemporary, African, Caribbean, and social dance forms to express spirituality, African-American and diaspora culture and the beauty of movement in many forms. 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 a socially distanced version of Mercy
, an ethereal movement meditation that seeks to guide our hearts set to music by Meshell Ndegeocello.
"...Grace achieves grace, like an answered prayer, but Mercy is a plea for mercy, as yet unanswered. It's honest, and the truth it tells should make us all the more grateful for anything like Grace..." (The New York Times)
In the heart of the University of Minnesota Twin Cities campus, Northrop presents both online and in-person world-class dance and music performances, speakers, films, exhibits, and more.
