About Grace and Mercy, by EVIDENCE Dance Company
This electrifying double bill, from choreographer Ronald K. Brown and a host of world-class musicians, includes the premiere of Mercy, with soul-and-rock legend Meshell Ndegeocello performing her specially commissioned score for the first time. The program also features a newly conceived, 20th-anniversary presentation of Brown’s soulful masterpiece Grace, originally created in 1999 for the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. Mixing modern and West African dance idioms to depict a spiritual journey to the promised land, Grace is presented for the first time with entirely live music, including performances by R&B virtuoso Peven Everett.
