Description

Sunday, April 23, 2017 at 7 pm

Why You Follow (2014): Developed as part of a cultural exchange between Cuba and the United States, Why You Follow is a rousing exploration of the rhythmic pace of Afro-Cuba. To be able to lead, we must first learn to follow – the beat of our hearts, the tides of time, and the call of the drum. The work is divided into four short movements: Open Heart, Commitment, The Path, and Faithfully Forward.

March (1995): From his larger work Lessons, Ron K. Brown brings us March, an extraordinary duet set to a speech by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. that speaks to the value of a man. The movement embodies the sentiment of the text to illustrate a physical story of perseverance, dignity, and collective strength and care-taking.

Four Corners (2013): Dancers depict spiritual seekers amid four angels standing on the corners of the earth, holding the four winds. Originally a commission for the Ailey company, the Ronald K. Brown turned to the song “Lamentations” by his friend, recording artist Carl Hancock Rux.
