Ronald K. Brown 

Arts in Education program manager Diana Green talks with Ronald K. Brown, artistic director of Evidence, A Dance Company before his performance at the Samford University Wright Center during the 2012 Alabama Dance Festival. The interview is a sneak preview into the process of this well-known choreographer from Brooklyn, New York. His work is a seamless fusion of traditional African dance with contemporary choreography and spoken word. It provides a unique view of human struggles, tragedies, and triumphs. Brown uses movement as a way to reinforce the importance of community in African American culture and to acquaint audiences with the beauty of traditional African forms and rhythms. The depth of human experience that has become the inspiration for his work is evident as he speaks about why he creates.
