Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater returns to Sadler’s Wells with two programmes showcasing the extraordinary artistry of a company that has changed the face of American dance over the course of more than half a century.

Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater’s Programme One includes the gripping solo In/Side, plus the elegant Dancing Spirit, a piece that fuses movement from Brazil, Cuba and the USA. Suite Otis is a playful battle of the sexes set to some of Otis Redding’s best-loved songs.

Highlights of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater’s Programme Two include a brand new work from acclaimed choreographer Christopher Huggins plus Artistic Director Judith Jamison’s 1993 Emmy Award-winning production Hymn, a tribute to company founder Alvin Ailey.

Both programmes feature the classic Revelations, the most seen modern dance work in the world, choreographed by Ailey and first performed in 1960. A piece that celebrates and pays tribute to American dance music and history, it explores a journey from deepest grief to unbound joy and continues to inspire audiences whenever it is performed.
