About Ronald K. Brown/EVIDENCE with Arturo O'Farrill & Resist
Ronald K. Brown/EVIDENCE performs New Conversations, a soulful, uplifting new work marked by Brown’s iconic blend of African, Caribbean, and contemporary choreography and set to Afro-Cuban jazz music by GRAMMY-Award winning musician Arturo O’Farrill, performed live by O’Farrill and jazz ensemble Resist.
Ronald K. Brown/EVIDENCE has deeply moved audiences for over thirty years, praised for a “sophisticated amalgam of Afrocentric movement and modern dance” that often makes “spirituality…something vibrant and transformative” (Los Angeles Times).
Performed with live music for the first time, New Conversations was commissioned by long-time Pillow supporters The Charles and Joan Gross Family Foundation and was created in part during a residency at Jacob’s Pillow.

On July 9, 1942, the Ted Shawn Theatre, the first theatre in the United States designed specifically for dance, opened its doors. Architect Joseph Franz, who also built The Music Shed at Tanglewood, had agreed with Shawn that the theatre exterior must harmonize with the existing farmhouse and barns.
