Ailey’s acclaimed 18-year veteran Matthew Rushing invites audiences to visit the Harlem Renaissance in Uptown, his first solo choreographic effort for the Company.  Bringing to life that era’s legends and swinging glory, the piece is set to the vibrant music of Fats Waller, Eubie Blake, Nat “King” Cole and more. 
 
Other season highlights include a new Best of 20 Years highlights program, with excerpts from 13 of the nearly 100 ballets that Jamison has commissioned or revived in the Ailey repertory during her two decades of leadership; a new production of Hymn, Judith Jamison’s Emmy Award-winning homage to Alvin Ailey; and Robert Battle’s In/Side, a gripping solo that plays out to the vivid emotions of Nina Simone’s “Wild is the Wind”.
 
Throughout the tour, the Company will showcase a diverse repertory, including favorites such as Alvin Ailey’s signature masterpiece Revelations, a must-see for all people. 
 
“I can’t wait to see audiences join my extraordinary dancers on this season’s inspiring journey through the past two decades and into the future,” says 2009 TIME 100 Honoree Judith Jamison.  “We know how to fly, we really do.”  One of the most renowned figures in modern dance, Jamison is a recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors, a National Medal of Arts and many of the nation’s most prestigious honors given to artists.  Dedicated to asserting the prominence of the arts in our culture, her autobiography, Dancing Spirit, was edited by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and published by Doubleday.  Jamison recently led a 50-city tour celebrating Ailey’s 50th Anniversary and was acknowledged by The New York Times as “surely the most stellar and admired artistic director of any repertory dance company in America.”
 
Founded by Alvin Ailey in 1958, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater’s inspiring performances, seen in over 70 countries on 6 continents, honor and enrich the African American cultural experience and the American modern dance tradition, uniting people of all backgrounds in a celebration of the human spirit through the universal language of dance. 
 
Ailey’s mission of bringing dance to the people will reach young people through special student performances and master classes.  Revelations: An Interdisciplinary Approach curriculum program will be implemented in public schools in Chicago, Orange County and New York, thanks to the J.P. Morgan Art of Learning Sponsorship. Utilizing Alvin Ailey's signature work, Revelations, the program is an inspirational framework for a comprehensive study of language arts, social studies, and dance.

The Stack-Up (1982) (1997 – New Production)
Choreographer: Talley Beatty
Music:  Pillip Bailey, Larry Dunn, Maurice White, & Verdine White (Earth, Wind & Fire - “Faces”)
Talley Beatty’s fast and furious jazz choreography sends dancers whizzing across the stage while throbbing to the pulsating beats of Earth, Wind & Fire.  The Stack-Up is a tough, brutal, yet lyrical examination of what happens when life causes a coming together of disparate social and cultural elements, offering a glimpse of urban L.A. life. 
 
Grace (1999)
Choreographer:  Ronald K. Brown
Music: Duke Ellington sung by Jimmy McPhail (“Come Sunday”)

Choreographer:  Lar Lubovitch
Music: Philip Glass (“Ange des Orages”)

Shelter (1988) (1992 - joined Ailey repertory)
Choreographer:   Jawole Willa Jo Zollar
Music: Junior "Gabu" Wedderburn
Text: “Belongo” by Laurie Carlos read by Carl Hancock Rux

Frames (1992)
Choreographer:  Dwight Rhoden
Music: Music/Vocalist: Kemp Harris, Words: Dwight Rhoden (“Moonlight”)
Complexions Contemporary Ballet Co-Founder and Artistic Director Dwight Rhoden’s first work for Ailey in 1992, while a dancer with the company, is an abstract exploration into the depictions of relationships with angular choreography, and, in this solo, “Stanza 5 -  Moonlight,” gestural movements inspired by intimate emotions. 
 
Bad Blood (1984) (1986 – joined Ailey repertory)
Choreographer:  Ulysses Dove
Music: Laurie Anderson (“Gravity’s Angel”)
Dancing at an extremely athletic and emotionally visceral level, the dancers in this excerpted duet of Bad Blood reveal the power and magnetic pull of courtship rites with a ruthless and sharp movement vocabulary.
 
Rainbow Round My Shoulder (1959) (1972 – joined Ailey repertory, 2003 –New Production)
Choreographer:   Donald McKayle
Music: Traditional, Arranged by Robert de Cormier & Milton Okun
This modern dance classic by Donald McKayle is a portrait of the grueling life of men on the chain gang, punctuated by the dreams of love, joy, and passion that sustain them.  The woman’s solo, “The Dream…” is the representation of the men’s vision of their mothers, wives, and sweethearts. 
 
Dance at the Gym (1991)
Choreographer:  Donald Byrd
Music: Mio Morales
Inspired by the group dances in Jerome Robbin’s production of West Side Story, Dance at the Gym depicts the complexity, intensity and competitiveness of teenage relationships, offering an exploration into the struggles and challenges of young people seeking companionship.

Polish Pieces (1995) (1996 - joined Ailey repertory)
Choreographer:  Hans van Manen
Music: Henryk-Mikolaj Górecki
Leading European choreographer Hans van Manen set Polish Pieces on the Ailey company for its United States premiere in 1996.  This excerpted duet is a highlight from the abstract work, set to a classical score by Henryk-Mikolaj Górecki.
 
The Winter in Lisbon (1992)
Choreographer:  Billy Wilson
Music:  Dizzy Gillespie (“Manteca”)
This festive excerpt, from the piece celebrating the extraordinary talent of jazz musician Dizzy Gillespie by dance and Broadway choreographer Billy Wilson, is a vibrant party on-stage.
 
 
 
Ailey Classics
Night Creature (1975)
Choreography: Alvin Ailey                                                                                                                                          Music: Duke Ellington
Combining modern dance, classical ballet and jazz, and juxtaposed within Ellington's jazz idiom, Night Creature captivates with Ailey's sexy nocturnal rituals that propel the movement into a fast paced climatic catharsis. Duke Ellington first composed the phenomenal, "Suite For Orchestra" in 1955, later adding the second and third movements in 1963. Night Creature is the definitive Ailey homage to the exuberance of The Duke's jazz, and remains one of Mr. Ailey’s most popular works.
 
Revelations (1960)
Choreography: Alvin Ailey                                                                                                                                          Music: Traditional
Alvin Ailey said that one of America’s richest treasures was the cultural heritage of the African-American—“sometimes sorrowful, sometimes jubilant, but always hopeful”.  This enduring classic is a tribute to that heritage and to Ailey’s genius.  Using African-American religious music--spirituals, song-sermons, gospel songs and holy blues--this suite fervently explores the places of deepest grief and holiest joy in the soul.
 
Repertory Favorites
Episodes (1987)
Choreography: Ulysses Dove                                                                                                                                     Music: Robert Ruggieri
Ulysses Dove created this explosive choreographic masterpiece, Episodes, for the classical London Festival Ballet in 1987, exploring the battle of the sex with original and daring choreographic feats to the provocative soundscore by Robert Ruggieri.  A former member of the Ailey company, Mr. Dove re-choreographed the dance on pointe for Patrick Dupond's Ballet Francais de Nancy in 1988 and set it on the Ailey dancers in 1989.
 
Love Stories (2004)
Choreography: Judith Jamison, Rennie Harris, Robert Battle                                                                       Music: Stevie Wonder
Inspired by Sankofa, the Akan word which means “go back” (Sanko) and “take” (fa), Judith Jamison’s dynamic collaboration with hip-hop pioneer Rennie Harris and modern dance maverick Robert Battle examines the technique, energy, movement and rhythm of African-American social dances on a journey through past, present and future. Under Jamison’s direction, the unique styles, expressive voices and no-limits choreography of these artists draw on variations on the lindy-hop, Philly-bop, hip-hop and eclectic modern dance techniques to explore a love of movement, all set to the soundscape of engineer Darrin Ross and the music of the legendary Stevie Wonder
 
Solo (1997)
Choreography: Hans van Manen                                                                                                               Music: Johann Sebastian Bach
Hans van Manen divides his kinetic Solo among three dancers in a tour de force work that challenges the Ailey
men’s daring agility and grace. This explosive display of virtuosity and wit launches the men into an exhilarating
whirlwind of movement and musicality.
 
Suite Otis (1971)
Choreography: George Faison                                                                                                                                   Music:  Otis Redding     
The timeless music of pioneering soul singer Otis Redding sets the stage for former Ailey company member and Tony Award-winning choreographer George Faison’s playful battle of the sexes.  The yearning sensuality of soul stirring songs such as “Satisfaction,” “Try a Little Tenderness,” “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long” and other favorites burst through this wildly popular six-part suite of dances ripe with romance and humor.

ALVIN AILEY AMERICAN DANCE THEATER
Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, recognized by U.S. Congressional resolution as a vital American “Cultural Ambassador to the World,” grew from a now fabled March 1958 performance in New York that changed forever the perception of American dance. Today, led by Judith Jamison, now celebrating her 20th Anniversary as Artistic Director, Ailey has performed for an estimated 23 million people in 48 states and in 71 countries on 6 continents, including two historic residencies in South Africa, promoting the uniqueness of the African-American cultural experience and the preservation and enrichment of the American modern dance tradition. Alvin Ailey Dance Foundation, Inc. is the umbrella organization which includes Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater; Ailey II (1974) a second performing company of emerging young dancers and innovative choreographers; The Ailey School, (1969) one of the most extensive dance training programs in the world; Ailey Arts In Education & Community Programs which brings dance into the classrooms, communities and lives of people of all ages; and The Ailey Extension, a program offering dance and fitness classes to the general public that began with the opening of Ailey’s permanent home – the nation’s largest building dedicated to dance - named The Joan Weill Center for Dance, located at 55th Street at 9th Avenue in New York City.  For more information, visit www.alvinailey.org
