Teenies images inspired me to discover the story inside and behind the photos, says Ronald K. Brown, choreographer/artistic director for Evidence, A Dance Company. Drawing upon all this for a ballet seems like a tall order, but Brown managed to pin it down in seven parts, including Free Spirits, The Meeting Room and The Crossroads, which mix traditional African, ballet and contemporary dance with spoken word. 8 p.m. Cullen Theater, Wortham Center, 500 Texas.
