1. One of Mr. Battle’s first creations, this bravura work mixes humor and high-flying movement in a savvy deconstruction of Indian Kathak dance rhythms.

    Clear shapes and propulsive jumps mimic the vocalized rhythmic syllables of Sheila Chandra's syncopated score.

    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.

  3. Thang Dao’s Echoes began as a depiction of haunting memories. But this poignant ballet has since taken on a life of its own, as the echoes of memories cascade into the distant past while pervading our awareness of the present. Performed by Ailey II.

  4. This standout work was Mr. Ailey’s first full-length dance without a plot—a gorgeous exploration of the architecture of bodies in space, with a percussion score by Miloslav Kabelac.

    Walter Terry of the Saturday Review writes that Streams "is a stunning group work built chiefly on diagonal lines and evoking the title in abstract form through varying speeds, eddyings, flowings, racings, and floatings, all related to moods of jubilance, sadness, acceptance, and glee." While there is no story told in the work, Alvin Ailey arouses different thoughts and feelings through the movement and the music. They invoke images and sensations inspired by various bodies of water, from gentle brook to turbulent ocean, which correlate to the changing tides within us.
