Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater returns to the Auditorium Theatre, the company’s Chicago home for nearly half a century, with six breathtaking performances. This year’s annual engagement features three different programs of relevant, inspiring new works, including the Chicago premiere of company member Jamar Roberts’ Members Don’t Get Weary, called “striking” and “virtuosic” by the New York Times, and Spanish choreographer Gustavo Ramírez Sansano’s Victoria, a tribute to the triumph of good over evil. The company also brings new productions of Twyla Tharp’s The Golden Section and Chicago-born choreographer Talley Beatty’s Stack-Up to Chicago. Each performance ends with Alvin Ailey’s masterpiece Revelations, a “modern classic” (The Washington Post) that has been seen by more people than any other contemporary dance work.
