CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers). Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April to August is actually postponed or cancelled. It now looks likely that little will return till 2021.

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.
