Alvin Ailey: Programmes A

Incredible contemporary dance at London's premier dance and theatre venue

The world-famous and world-class dance company, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, returns to Sadler's Wells for the first time since 2010 with an exhilarating showcase of dance. Celebrating nearly 60 years of unparalleled artistry, Ailey's trademark technical brilliance and passionate energy bring audiences everywhere to their feet every night. In Exodus, the first piece of the evening, acclaimed hip hop choreographer Rennie Harris creates a highly-anticipated UK premiere that explores the idea of exodus as a necessary step toward enlightenment. Set to gospel and house music along with poetic narration, the work underscores the crucial role of action and movement in effecting change. Following this, in Ronald K Brown's Four Corners, 11 dancers depict spiritual seekers amid four angels standing on the corners of the earth, holding the four winds. Audiences are then treated to Christopher Wheeldon's After The Rain Pas De Deux. The dreamlike male-female duet has been widely praised for its sublime simplicity and intricate partnering, and it is revealed in a fresh light as the Ailey dancers make it their own. Concluding the evening is Ailey's legendary Revelations, the most seen modern dance work in the world. More than just a popular dance work, it has become a cultural treasure, beloved by generations of fans. Runtime: 2 hours 15 minutes, including an interval.
