With his dancers Arcell Cabuag, Otis Donovan Herring, Clarice Young, and Annique Roberts, Ronald K. Brown will talk about their trips to Africa and show video clips.

After celebrating its 25th Anniversary in 2010 at a gala performance at New York’s Plaza Hotel, Evidence embarked on a ground-breaking tour of Africa under the auspices of DanceMotion/USA. The company performed, taught and acted as cultural ambassadors in Nigeria, Senegal and South Africa. Ron Brown has traveled in Africa as dance teacher since 1995 when he taught contemporary dance to the theater company Koteba Ensemble in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire. Working in Africa expanded Brown’s movement vocabulary and shaped his awareness of his artistic potential and his role in contemporary dance.
