What to expect from Alvin American Dance Theater's new programme at Sadler's Wells

With 60 years of outstanding pieces, the show goes on, and incredible works continue to flow from these trailblazers. For this new production, they present a flood of exciting new works along with modern classics in an exciting mixed programme that demonstrates why they’re at the top of their league with their unmatched skill.

Programme B opens with the 100th ballet by prolific choreographer Jessica Lang, EN,  which delves into fate, predestination and the metaphor of the circle. Next comes The Call, Ronald K. Brown’s modern love letter to Alvin Ailey set to the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, Asase Yaa Entertainment Group and the Mary Lou Williams Trio. The third work in the programme is the first work Robert Battle has created for the company. Ailey’s artistic director has placed folk traditions in a modern world in his new work  Juba.

Revelations, widely considered Alvin Ailey’s masterpiece, and the company’s signature piece, will end each of the shows. This piece is performed as a closing prayer which deviates between grief and elation as it explores the cultural heritage of African-American’s spirituality. The performance is accompanied by an emotional score of gospel music and blues.

Alama SYLLA15th September

The performance was amazing, various, the dancers were excellent. I really like the colour of the costumes, the music's, the atmosphere. I strongly recommended.

Pierre Van Hecke9th September

Truly exceptional performance. Both individually and collectively this is an outstanding show. We were most impressed by Jessica Lang's new choreography EN. One little remark would be that although each piece was outstanding on itself, we thought the separate pieces were stylistically quite far apart from eachother.

Honorata Lukaszewska9th September

Origins with modern dance are really the best, i was tauched about The Relevations

Thoroughly enjoyed the performances.; I have not been out to a show in a long time and this has encouraged me to venture out more often.
