Upcoming Events

Ronald K. Brown/Evidence Dance Company

Ronald K. Brown/Evidence Dance Company & Jason Moran and the Bandwagon

Choreographer Ronald K. Brown and pianist Jason Moran combine their respective ensembles for the world premiere of The Subtle One for Duke Performances Feb. 20-21. Set to live music, the new work reflects on ancestors and the impact they have on the lives of people today. It’s paired with selections from Brown’s One Shot, based on the life of a photographer, and is set to music by Ahmad Jamal and Mary Lou Williams, played live by the Bandwagon. One of the most popular works in the repertory of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Brown’s Grace – set to recordings by Duke Ellington, Roy Davis and Fela Kuti – opens the evening at Reynolds Industries Theater.



Using everything but conventional percussion instruments – matchboxes, wooden poles, brooms, garbage cans, hubcaps – the eight members of STOMP will fill the Durham Performing Arts Center’s auditorium with mesmerizing rhythms March 27-29. The hit show returns to the stage with updated and restructured sections and the addition of two new full-scale routines, utilizing props like tractor tire inner tubes and paint cans.

Sporting his trademark fedora, Boney James plays The Carolina Theatre this Saturday.
