The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater’s mixed programme is just the ticket for your chance to witness the unparalleled artistry that this company boasts. Having recently celebrated their 60th anniversary, this dance company continues to go strong with their exciting new works, which has a limited 10-day run at Sadler’s Wells in London!

What to expect from Alvin American Dance Theater's Programme A 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 A opens with Rennie Harris’ newest work Lazurus. Following the success of the UK premiere of Exodus at Sadler’s Wells in 2015, his newest piece uses the language of hip hop to explore the life and work of the company’s founder, Alvin Ailey. The intriguing score mixes original music with the classics of Nina Simone and even Ailey’s own voice.

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.

I had the most amazing experience . For me i've seen many ballet companies perform,but the story, and interpretation of the music /song was wonderful,just awesome. I actually spoke to someone who had been to see them 4 times..well that just says how lovely the performance was. I'll be there the next time they're in London.

Florrett Gooden9th September

Excellent performance. Cannot be faulted. The dancers were superb. I have seen Alivin Ailey dance theatre many times, but each time it is like seeing it again for the first time. If you like dance this should be your treat for the year.

Nydia Philbert8th September

An absolutely powerful and breathtaking performance. From stunning visuals to elegant and diverse cast. More importantly showing black culture in a overwhelming and positive light. We need to see more theatre productions that embrace the black culture.
