The revered Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater—which first visited Cal Performances a full 50 years ago in 1968—returns to Berkeley for its annual residency. Under the direction of Robert Battle, the company looks forward with provocative and stirring works by living choreographers, while remaining firmly rooted in the enduring legacy of its founder. The Ailey dancers, many of whom have worked with the company for more than a decade, deliver Ailey’s classic Revelations with arresting authority: “The texture of their dancing is powerful and juicy, brilliant in speed and marvelous in slowness. You feel as if you’ve always known them” (The New York Times).
Robert Battle, artistic director
Masazumi Chaya, associate artistic director
