Description
Ronald K. Brown and members of Evidence Dance Company answer audience questions regarding the works just performed as well as general questions about dance and the company. Brown discusses the conception of his work Ebony Magazine, initially made for the Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Ensemble, early ideas and themes, and the origin of the title. The themes and imagery in Upside Down and Water are also discussed, with Cheryl Boyce Taylor addressing her role in the collaboration with Brown on Water and water as a theme in other works of hers. Brown talks about his heavy use of West African dance vocabulary in his pieces, especially Water, and the role of the costuming in that work. The dancers of the Evidence discuss the idea of community and its importance in their working process, as well as what drew them to Brown's work and company.
