Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater: Programme B Tickets

London Ballet & Dance
Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater - Programme B: EN/ The Call/ Juba/ Revelations
Having just celebrated their 60th anniversary, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater bring with them a flood of new and exciting works alongside modern classics in three mixed programmes that demonstrate the unparalleled artistry that has defined them. In a new production of Juba, his first work for the company, Ailey’s artistic director Robert Battle sets folk traditions in a modern world. Ronald K. Brown offers up his love letter to Ailey set to the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, the Mary Lou Williams Trio and Asase Yaa Entertainment Group, in The Call. And the prolific Jessica Lang’s 100th ballet, EN, explores fate, destiny and the metaphor of the circle. Alvin Ailey’s masterpiece, and the company’s signature piece, signs off each one of their shows. Performed as a closing prayer, Revelations veers from grief to elation as it explores African-American cultural heritage and spirituality alongside an emotional score of gospel music and blues.

    Thoroughly enjoyed the performances.; I have not been out to a show in a long time and this has encouraged me to venture out more often.

    Origins with modern dance are really the best, i was tauched about The Relevations

    Truly exceptional performance. Both individually and collectively this is an outstanding show. We were most impressed by Jessica Lang's new choreography EN. One little remark would be that although each piece was outstanding on itself, we thought the separate pieces were stylistically quite far apart from eachother.
