Choreographer Alvin Ailey brought diversity to the world of modern footwork with his Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, a multi-racial troupe formed in 1958 in New York City. Since his death in 1989, the group has garnered consistent critical acclaim. The group visits Knight Theater for a six-day run of performances — under the eye of newbie artistic director, Robert Battle — that will include a repertory of new and old material alike. From the Ailey archives: “Memoria,” “Streams,” and the spirited popper, “Revelations” — a signature piece documenting African-American spirits from slavery days through freedom with gospel and blues boosters. Several other choreographers, including Battle, Paul Taylor, Rennie Harris, Joyce Trisler, Ulysses Dove and Ohad Naharin, will also showcase their latest works. Sets vary; see Blumenthal's show description for more details.
