Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater - Programme C Tickets

London Ballet & Dance
Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater - Programme C: New Moultrie/ Members/ Don’t Get Weary/ Ella/ 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. Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater dancer and rising-star choreographer Jamar Roberts takes an abstract look into the notion of one “having the blues” in Members Don’t Get Weary, set to the music of John Coltrane. And to celebrate the centenary of Ella Fitzgerald’s birth, Robert Battle matches the legendary singer’s Airmail Special to a dizzyingly fast duet in Ella. Plus new work from multi-faceted choreographer Darrell Grand Moultrie. 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.

    I first saw this group in Dar es Salaam in 1965. Better now than ever. So expressive, so witty, so wonderful!

    Exhilarating, technically impressive and expressive dance styles. Loved the short intervals and suttle positioning of the scenery and lights, very evocative and leaving so much to your imagination, a genius stroke. We were three and we were transfixed and amazed throughout the first and second half.Thankyou to all the company for a marvellous afternoons entertainment. We will come back when you are in town.
