Watching Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater can change your life. If that sounds like a slogan, it’s truth in advertising.” -THE NEW YORK TIMES The Ailey company reveals their versatility in a season packed with premieres and new productions. Enjoy three brand-new works: Resident Choreographer Jamar Roberts’ Ode, which reflects on the beauty and fragility of life in a time of growing gun violence, Darrell Grand Moultrie’s Ounce of Faith, an exuberant expression of what’s possible when a young person is encouraged to dream, and Greenwood, a new commission from Donald Byrd that draws on Ailey’s theatrical roots. Company premieres include Aszure Barton’s BUSK, Camille A. Brown’s City of Rain and, for the first time in Ailey’s history, two solos by Merce Cunningham. The season also features new productions of Judith Jamison’s Divining and Lar Lubovitch’s Fandango, along with a dozen returning audience favorites such as Mr. Ailey’s timeless Revelations.
