Excellent! Alvin Ailey at the Auditorium Theatre (Through March 6, 2022)

Tonight is the Robert Battle 10th Anniversary Program. All the pieces are choreographed by Robert Battle, except for Revelations.

Mass (2004)

This piece is very spiritual and features the dancers in flowing church gowns. It goes well with Revelations.

IN/SIDE (2008)

Choreography by Robert Battle

Solomon Dumas is excellent in the piece. He is so athletic and graceful.

For Four (2021)

Music by Wynton Marsalis

This jazzy piece is so fun. It would fit right in with Giordano Dance Chicago’s repertoire. It matches their talent and their style.

TAKADEME (1999)

Music by Sheila Chandra

The song uses vocals in a very percussive manner and the dance is perfectly choreographed to match. Patrick Coker does an impeccable job visualizing the speed of the song and also the humor in it. The crowd is absolutely delighted.

Excerpt from LOVE STORIES (2004)

Music by Stevie Wonder

This piece is so fun and colorful. It’s a joyous piece that is exactly what we need right now.

Revelations (1960)

Choreography by Alvin Ailey

This is a full company piece that is met with a loud applause right when it starts. It’s gospel music that plays which gives the piece a religious feel. It’s happy, sad, and beautiful. Since its premiere, it has been performed continuously around the globe and it has become the most widely seen modern dance piece in the world.

This program will be repeated on Saturday at 8pm. The other performances will include different dances.
