The legacy of legendary New York choreographer Alvin AIley, credited with popularising modern dance in the middle of the last century, today lives on through his world-famous dance theatre, currently led by artistic director Robert Battle. Two different programmes will be performed across the four days, the first including Ailey's signature work 'Revelations', telling the history of the African Americans' journey from slavery to freedom (Thu 9pm, Sat 5pm and 9pm, Sun 4pm). The second includes the pieces 'From Before', 'Strange Humor' and 'Minus 16' (Wed 9pm, Fri 9pm, Sun 8pm), each with a unique soundtrack taking in everything from Dean martin to techno to power the on-stage grace.
