EBONY MAGAZINE: TO A VILLAGE
Choreography by: Ronald K. Brown
Music by: Wunmi
Costumes: Omotayo Wunmi Olaiya
Lighting by: Brenda Gray
Ebony Magazine: to a Village begins with a parade of individuals preoccupied with their own façade and beauty. The
mantra in the score, “do you see what I see” is a challenge to question one’s perceptions. The movement allows the dancers to shift from their self-consciousness to a physicality that is more connected to the ground and ultimately to each other. Ebony Magazine: to a Village was originally commissioned and performed by Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Ensemble and became a part of the Evidence repertory in March 1998.
