The iconic Ronald K. Brown, the first Mellon Fellow in Choreography at Williams, brings a program that will include The Subtle One, Brown’s extraordinary new collaboration with the renowned jazz pianist Jason Moran. The Subtle One dances through the mystic and inspirational relationship between spiritual beings and the society they inhabit. In Arabic, “Al-Lateef” or “The Subtle One” means “the one who whispers things into existence.” The dancers and the music affect each other with this softness. Performers move as “subtle ones,” affecting one another and the audience as they perceive the world.
Evidence was founded by choreographer Ronald K. Brown in 1985. The company’s spiritually infused work provides a unique view of human experience through danced journeys of identity and community.
