Evidence, A Dance Company, based in Brooklyn, NY fuses traditional African dance with contemporary choreography and spoken word to provide a unique view of the human experience. Founder and choreographer Ronald K. Brown’s newest work, Two-Year Old Gentlemen, is an homage to the traditions passed down from one generation of men to another. Inspired by the relationship between Brown’s young nephew and his grandfather (who passed away last year at age 80), Two-Year Old Gentlemen poses questions about male responsibility—to one’s community, to one’s family and to one’s self. Also featured is an original score composed and performed live by Guinean drummer Mamadouba Mohammed Camara. (Running Time: Act 1—34 min, Intermission, Act 2—55 min)

The program also features Ife/My Heart, Grace and Journey (a restaging of the Nick Cave collaboration).
This is the part I'll be dancing in. It will be the same movement from the performance I did back in May, 2009 minus the Soundsuit! Here's a video from that performance:



I'm in the black Soundsuit with the rainbow wig. I'm so excited to be dancing with such a lovely group of dancers and an amazing choreographer! A dream come true.
