Evidence, A Dance Company's 8th Annual Gala



Evidence, A Dance Company to Host 8th Annual Gala

Dance company to present world premiere of “Gatekeepers”, a work exploring intergenerational caregiving

WHAT: Evidence, A Dance Company will host its 8th Annual Gala on Monday, February 13, 2012, at New York's Manhattan Center to support the dance company's mission to promote understanding of the African Diaspora through dance and storytelling and to provide sensory connections to history and tradition through music, movement and spoken word.

The Verizon Foundation will receive the 2012 Corporate Award for their long standing support of the arts and Evidence, A Dance Company. Distinguished guests from the arts and entertainment industry and business community will attend the star-studded benefit gala. The black-tie affair will begin with an elegant cocktail reception, followed by dinner, a special performance by Evidence, dessert and Evidence’s signature “Dancing with the Dancers”.

The Gala will present Evidence's first ever performance of Gatekeepers, a powerful modern dance work that blends Native American myth and African traditions to explore the theme of service and intergenerational care giving. Gatekeepers was choreographed by Evidence's Founder and Artistic Director Ronald K. Brown, an internationally-acclaimed choreographer known for his inspirational works for Alvin Ailey, and who recently choreographed Gershwin’s masterpiece Porgy and Bess, which opens on Broadway in January 2012.

All proceeds will benefit Evidence's outreach programs, including the Gatekeeper Project, which through unique performances and outreach activities in communities across the U.S., aims to teach young people responsibility and respect for their elders, and help them better understand the meaning of community service.
