You don’t just see an Ailey performance, you feel it. This December, engage your emotions as the world’s most popular dance company returns with five weeks of premieres, new productions, and returning favorites. Highlights include: Hope Boykin’s r-Evolution, Dream., which draws inspiration from the speeches and sermons of Martin Luther King, Jr.; Kyle Abraham’s Untitled America, an unflinching look at the impact of the prison system on African-American families, a work created with the support of commissioning funds from City Center; Mauro Bigonzetti’s Deep, which soulfully melds international influences; and Johan Inger’s Walking Mad, a daring contemporary take on Ravel’s Bolero. And, of course, Alvin Ailey’s Revelations returns as an enduring masterpiece that unites us in hope.
