Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater

PLEASE NOTE:

April 19, 2022 Update: We have been contacted by the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater company that in order to keep their dancers healthy to continue their tour, they will require all audience members to wear a mask when attending the pre-show discussion and performance on Wednesday, April 20. If anyone forgets their mask, the Marcus Center security will provide one at the door. We are sorry for the late notice and hope you will be understanding as we support the needs of our artists. We look forward to seeing you. If you have questions, or we can be of assistance as you make plans for the show, please call our box office at 414.273.7206.

 


 

Connecting with audiences is at the heart of the Ailey experience, so Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater's much-anticipated return to the stage is reason to rejoice. Revel in the passion these extraordinary dancers bring to each step, the artistry no pandemic can diminish, and the communal joy of live performance. The Company will present a program combining contemporary works by Aszure Barton and Robert Battle with classics by Alvin Ailey, including Cry (celebrating its 50th anniversary) and the beloved Revelations, a universal anthem of resilience that resounds anew in 2022.

Pre-performance discussion with Artistic Director, Mr. Robert Battle and Associate Artistic Director, Mr. Matthew Rushing from 6:30 to 7 pm in Bradley Pavilion.

Due to unforeseen circumstances tonight’s performance of BUSK has been replaced with MASS.

 “If you haven’t seen Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, you haven’t seen dance…[they’re] the most exciting dance company in the world. If you’ve never seen them perform, you have no idea what the human body can do, in terms of sheer grace, control, elegance, strength, and athleticism.” 

-THE HUFFINGTON POST
 

“Watching Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater can change your life. If that sounds like a slogan, it’s truth in advertising.” 

-THE NEW YORK TIMES  
 

“The Ailey dancers set the stage on fire with contemporary repertory. Talk about electrifying. The dancers wrapped their bodies and souls around works created for them.” 

-CHICAGO SUN TIMES
