CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 but restrictions were lifted on 19th July 2021 with venues free to run shows to full capacity audiences after that though there are still issues with company members being forced to self-isolate on being 'pinged'. In September it is possible that a COVID vaccination certificate (or exemption) may be mandated for entry. Please note that iUKTDb archive listings between March 2020 and July 2021 may not be accurate as we did not receive details of all rescheduled and cancelled shows.

Renowned for its soul-stirring high energy performances, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater is one of America's greatest companies. Taking popular music, gospel and jazz and mixing the classical vocabulary of ballet with a contemporary style, the Company of 30 dancers radiate a slick and sassy energy that is purely infectious. Grace is a transcendental ballet fusing modern dance and West African idioms to evoke the grace that suffuses life's journey. The musical score is grounded by Duke Ellington's Come Sunday and has accents of hip-hop and West African pop. Following the Subtle Current Upstream pumps up the spped in an exhilarating spectacle in white nonstop action showcases the dancers' daring agility and phenomental strength while tabla player Zakir Husseins percussive score adds some East Indian rhythm. Revelations captures the exuberant energy of black spirituals and the 'blood memories' of Ailey's childhood in Texas.
