There are so many good things coming up at the ’62 Center for Theatre & Dance in Williamstown we want you to know about. Williams College brings some of the finest artists and cultural innovators to their campus each year, and we are fortunate to be able to see them, too. The theater they perform in is turned over to the famed Williamstown Theatre Festival in the summer. Plenty of parking in the back.
RONALD K. BROWN & EVIDENCE DANCE COMPANY: “THE SUBTLE ONE”
Tonight (Friday, January 22) | 8pm | $10/ $3 (students)
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.
