The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre
Revelations will close every Ailey performance at Lincoln Center, June 13–17.
On March 30, 1958, Alvin Ailey launched Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, forever changing the face of American dance. We honor Mr. Ailey’s legacy with this special video performance of the section of Mr. Ailey’s Revelations called “I Wanna Be Ready,” danced by veteran Ailey company member Matthew Rushing.
Filmed in Rogers, Texas, where Mr. Ailey was born and lived as a young child, the video also features live accompaniment by five local singers.

Jonathan González: ZERO
April 12 - 14
In his new work, ZERO, Jonathan González fabulates upon the grounds of Danspace Project’s location, St. Marks Church in-the-Bowery, and expands upon two years of research on grief and the choreographer’s participation in Dancing Platform Praying Grounds: Blackness, Churches, and Downtown Dance (Danspace Project Platform 2018).
Structurally informed by the four cardinal directions and seasons, four performers, Rena Anakwe, Chazz Bruce, Jeremy Toussaint-Baptiste, and González-continue in the legacy of vandalisms of the Church as a cast of thieves taken by the architecture and its shadows: the rumored slave gallery balconies and its cemetery grounds.
Concept and Choreography: Jonathan González
Collaborators and Performers: Rena Anakwe, Chazz Bruce, Jeremy Toussaint-Baptiste
Costume Design: Chi Ngyuen, Marlene Mulele Seecharan

Time to Talk is a multimedia dance-theater piece inspired by Dava's experiences of oppression and racial bias within academia. Dynamic fluid dance, live music, spoken word, projection art, and dialogue to call attention to racial inequalities within American concert dance and society at large. Performed with critically acclaimed Composer/Saxophonist/Clarinetist Mike McGinnis who created an original score that includes an arrangement of the song Skin, by Stew and Heidi Rodewald. Projection art by interdisciplinary artist Andre Zachery and lighting by Sarah Hamilton. Time to Talk aims to encourage audience members to question how they may knowingly or unknowingly contribute to maintaining social norms that support a status quo of inequity.
A Celebration of Arnie Zane, choreographer, dancer, one half of a famous partnership, co-founder of the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company. The day includes movement workshops, stories, installation, and performance featuring the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company and Bill T. Jones.
