Chroma, Grace, Takademe, Revelations (2015)
This 2015 broadcast features Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater performing a lush program teeming with grace and power. Alvin Ailey’s Revelations, described by The New York Times as “one of the great works of the human spirit,“ is a soulful masterpiece that draws on African-American spirituals, gospel songs, and holy blues. Wayne McGregor’s sumptuous Chroma features orchestrations of songs by The White Stripes, and Ronald K. Brown’s Grace draws on modern and West African dance with music by Duke Ellington, Roy Davis, and Fela Kuti. Rounding out the program is Robert Battle’s humorous, high-flying Takademe. Originally shown in cinemas as part of the series, Lincoln Center at the Movies: Great American Dance
