Saturday, January 24, 2015, 7:30 PM

Brown’s inventive fusion of traditional African and modern dance returns, part inspired celebration of the music of Stevie Wonder and featuring community dancers.

Call Brown Mr. Wonder-ful. His profound “stories in movement” told to several songs from Wonder’s legendary catalog (“You and I,” “Living for the City,” “Higher Ground”) incorporate themes of community, ritual and shared experience. The company’s arts education residency integrates auditions and rehearsals for the piece On Earth Together transforming Michiana residents into dancers who will join the ensemble onstage. Brown’s signature “supple, spontaneous choreography” (The New York Times) also tours with the Alvin Ailey American Dance Company.

“Mr. Brown must be a modern-dance savior.” New York Times

Higher Ground: A Celebration of African Drumming and Dance

The Presenting Series honors the life and achievements of Martin Luther King, Jr. with three nights of inspired performances by Ronald K. Brown/Evidence. Immediately following Friday's performance, we embrace Brown's ability to transcend differences to achieve something more universally and poetically spiritual while acquainting audiences with the beauty of traditional African forms and rhythms with Higher Ground: A Celebration of African Drumming and Dance.

Musicians and dancers from our community come together on stage, echoing Brown's themes of compassion and love explored in the residency and performances of On Earth Together, the large community engagement project undertaken by the center's Presenting Series and Evidence to present Brown's signature work set to the music of Stevie Wonder.
