Alvin Ailey: Programmes B

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. The evening begins with Open Door. Renowned for his fusion of African and modern dance, Brown adds new flavour to his signature style, setting this work to recordings by Arturo O'Farrill and the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra. Following this is Paul Taylor's Piazzolla Caldera: a sensual exposé of tango as reinterpreted and reimagined with modern dance. Taylor honours the tradition of tango, preserving the essence of the form in his choreography. 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 5 minutes, including an interval.
