The mission of Evidence, A Dance Company is to promote understanding of the human experience in the African Diaspora through dance and storytelling and to provide sensory connections to history and tradition through music, movement, and spoken word, leading deeper into issues of spirituality, community responsibility and liberation. Recent highlights have included a four-week tour to Africa sponsored by the U.S. State Department, performances at the Vancouver International Dance Festival and a smashing season at Harlem Stage in New York.
