Revelations - Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater


Alvin Ailey said that one of America’s richest treasures was the cultural heritage of the African-American - ”sometimes sorrowful, sometimes jubilant, but always hopeful.” This enduring classic is a tribute to that heritage and to Ailey’s genius. Using African-American traditional spirituals, this suite fervently explores the places of deepest grief and holiest joy in the soul. Now more than ever, the world needs the power of dance to bring people together and connect us all by our common humanity. For its annual Kennedy Center engagement, the beloved company will continue to push the art form into fascinating new territory, with multiple programs as unique and phenomenal as the Ailey dancers themselves. Performances running Tuesday, February 6, 2018 - Sunday, February 11, 2018 at the Kennedy Center. For more information and to purchase tickets, please visit: Subscribe to The Kennedy Center!
