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. Divining is a mysterious, abstract work of ritualized dance set to a score of North African, Latin and Central African rhythms. The second piece, Pas de Duke is an Ailey masterpiece, a modern dance translation of a classical pas de deux showing off star dancer's technique and Ellington's musical range. The passion and kinetic athletic energy of Dove's Bad Blood encapsulates the powerful yet extremely tender war between the sexes begging the questions 'can we be a duo and an individual at the same time?'. Revelations captures the exuberant energy of black spirituals and the 'blood memories' of Ailey's childhood in Texas.
