Love Songs, a three-part technical and dramatic tour-de-force originally created for the legendary Dudley Williams, is often viewed as the male counterpart to Cry, the famous woman’s solo that Mr. Ailey originally choreographed for his muse, Judith Jamison. Love Songs offers a message of hope and commitment as it traces the dancer’s journey through love, anguish, and determination to overcome adversity.
