More About the Preview Performance
This project was ignited when Max Roach’s family approached The Joyce Theater with an idea: to celebrate the centennial of Roach’s life in 2024 by showcasing his music through dance. This celebration will span New York City and the entire nation, and we’re honored to host the preview performance at Chautauqua as the companies gear up for this remarkable tour.
Ronald K. Brown, no stranger to Malpaso, embarks on this creative journey once more. It all began with “Why You Follow,” the first collaborative piece he crafted with Malpaso, marking the start of a decade of international artistic partnerships. Now, he returns to work his magic, blending the talents of Malpaso Dance Company and his own Evidence dancers to Roach’s timeless masterpiece, “Percussion Bitter Sweet.” This composition, born from Max Roach’s 1961 visit to Cuba, will be the heartbeat of the preview performance.
The journey doesn’t end at Chautauqua; Ronald K. Brown’s residency with Malpaso will be a creative journey, culminating in the grand premiere at The Joyce in April 2024. The grand premiere will also feature performances by Rennie Harris and Ayodele Casel, all choreographed to Max Roach’s music.
