Description: Heralded by The New York Times as "a modern dance savior," Ronald K. Brown captures spirituality through a rapturous dance vocabulary that unites movement with song. This season, he and his company take the Joyce stage with two powerful programs. Program A features the world premiere of Torch, a fervent dance in celebration of the late dance enthusiast Beth Young, along with audience favorite Incidents, danced to the music of Aretha Franklin, Wunmi, and The Staple Singers. Order My Steps is also on the program. Program B features the full-length work Walking out the Dark, performed to the infectious music of Sweet Honey in the Rock and Francisco Mora, and Upside Down, featuring the music of Fela Anikulapo Kuti.
