Applauded by The New York Times his "highly developed craft" and music choices that are "irresistible for their sly sensuality and humor and even more for gut-wrenching rhythms that feel both elemental and intricately woven," Ronald K. Brown and his company, Evidence, return to The Joyce with two programs of dance, music, and storytelling. Program A features the New York Company premiere of Gatekeepers, a work that tells a story about caretaking and waiting at the door of heaven for those on their way.

Program B features Walking Out the Dark, Seeking Healing, Come Ye, and Upside Down, compelling pieces performed to music ranging from Cutumba Folklorio do Santiago, Nina Simone, Oumou Sangare, and Fela Anikulapo Kuti.
