Lincoln Center at the Movies

Revelations

Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater

Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater is celebrating six decades of “Revelations,“ a choreographic masterpiece that has become a lasting cultural treasure beloved by generations. Watch the company’s full performance from the 2015 Lincoln Center at the Movies production!

The piece, which premiered in 1960, pays homage to and reflects African-American cultural heritage, which Ailey considered one of America’s richest treasures – “sometimes sorrowful, sometimes jubilant, but always hopeful.“
