“Be prepared for two things: a continued devotion to tradition, but also big, refreshing surprises.”—The Chicago Tribune
Now more than ever, the world needs the power of dance to bring people together and connect us all by our common humanity. Celebrating its 60th anniversary, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater continues to push the art form into fascinating new territory while still honoring signature classics like Ailey’s masterpiece of hope and redemption, Revelations.
In this performance, The Company also brings Timeless Ailey, a special program that brings new vitality to more than a dozen treasures from Mr. Ailey’s wonderfully rich body of work, including highlights of seldom-seen gems Choral Dances, Hidden Rites, and The Lark Ascending as well as perennial favorites like Love Songs, Night Creature, Cry, and Revelations.
