The Ronald K. Brown/Evidence dance troupe will commence a new national tour with performances Fri (9/21) and Sat (9/22) at Wesleyan. Brown will present the world premiere of “One Shot”. Richard Kamins of the Courant reports:

Brown’s new dance piece based on the lifework of Pittsburgh-based photojournalist Charles “Teenie” Harris (1908-1998). With a score that features music from other Pittsburgh natives, such as Billy Strayhorn and Ahmad Jamal as well as Cuban “rap” group Anonimo Consejo, “One Shot” depicts the middle class life of the city’s African American citizens and how that community changed. The Ronald K. Brown/Evidence dance troupe begins its national tour with these two performances.
