Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater
Robert Battle, artistic director
Matthew Rushing, associate artistic director
Continuing a 55-year relationship, the magnificent dancers of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater return to Cal Performances for the company’s annual residency, with an exuberant selection of recent works and Ailey masterpieces. Steeped in the sounds of jazz, blues, and hip-hop, the Ailey company repertory celebrates the Black American experience, offering music and movement as expressions of pure joy and as opportunities for reflection and resistance. Past favorites and new works come alive through the commitment and artistry of the company’s athletic, expressive dancers, who inhabit choreography by creators like Rennie Harris, Aszure Barton, Twyla Tharp, Jamar Roberts, and Artistic Director Robert Battle with the same conviction as they reinvent classic Ailey gems like Revelations.
