The incomparable Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, perhaps the most acclaimed international ambassador of American culture performing today,
returns to the Bay Area. Under the inspired leadership of artistic director
Robert Battle, and building upon the “big, big wow” (San Jose Mercury
News) of its 2012 appearances, the company’s 2013 Berkeley residency
promises wide-ranging programs packed with Ailey classics-including the
“divinely timeless, rousing, and radiant” Revelations (Atlanta Journal-
Constitution)-and works by today’s most exciting choreographers.
