Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater — Programme C — New Moultrie / Members Don’t Get Weary / Ella / Revelations

Tues 10th - 14 September 2019

Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater dancer and rising-star choreographer Jamar Roberts takes an abstract look into the notion of one “having the blues” in Members Don’t Get Weary, set to the music of John Coltrane. And to celebrate the centenary of Ella Fitzgerald’s birth, Robert Battle matches the legendary singer’s Airmail Special to a dizzyingly fast duet in Ella. Plus new work from multi-faceted choreographer Darrell Grand Moultrie.

“Fast, ferocious and playful”
