Programme 1 - Aszure Barton/Are You in Your Feelings?/Revelations - T1548959157

Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater presents a programme of contemporary choreography, completed by the beloved classic Revelations. The performance opens with Aszure Barton's BUSK, a piece examining the multi-layered wisdom of the human body. Set to a spirited score, BUSK has been described as watching the physical unfurling of the human psyche. Kyle Abraham's Are You in Your Feelings? is a celebration of Black culture, Black music and the youthful spirit that perseveres in us all. Scored to a 'mixtape' of soul, hip-hop and R&B, it highlights the bridge between music, communication and personal memory. The performance closes with Revelations, the most widely viewed modern dance work in the world. Since its debut in 1960, Revelations has moved audiences with its powerful storytelling and soul-stirring music. Springing from Ailey's childhood memories of growing up in the American South, attending Baptist church services in Texas, Revelations pays homage to rich African American cultural traditions.

This programme combines three beloved works by Alvin Ailey himself who founded the company in 1958. The programme opens with The River, created in collaboration with the late musician and composer Duke Ellington. Combining classical ballet, modern dance and jazz, the piece uses water as a central motif in an allegory for the journey of birth, life and rebirth. Memoria is one of Ailey's most personal works, created as a tribute to his dear friend and colleague, Joyce Trisler. The piece will feature dancers selected from all over Scotland performing alongside the company. The performance closes with Revelations, the most widely viewed modern dance work in the world. Since its debut in 1960, Revelations has moved audiences with its powerful storytelling and soul-stirring music.
