Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater
Robert Battle, artistic director
Matthew Rushing, associate artistic director
Continuing a 55-year relationship with Cal Performances, the magnificent dancers of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater return to campus for the company's annual residency with an exuberant selection of recent works and Ailey masterpieces. Steeped in the sounds of jazz, blues, and hip-hop, the Ailey repertory celebrates the Black American experience, offering music and movement as expressions of pure joy and as opportunities for reflection and resistance. Past favorites and new works come alive through the commitment and artistry of the company's athletic, expressive dancers, who inhabit choreography by creators like Rennie Harris, Aszure Barton, Twyla Tharp, Jamar Roberts, and Artistic Director Robert Battle with the same conviction as they reinvent classic Ailey gems like Revelations.

Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater at UC Berkeley" (San Francisco Chronicle).

Robert Battle, who recently celebrated 10 years as artistic director, has doubled down during his tenure on the values that make this ensemble a crown jewel among American companies: artistic excellence, daring innovation, and profound cultural relevance. Recent works by innovators like Rennie Harris and Jamar Roberts honor and continue the legacy of timeless Ailey masterpieces like Revelations, telling powerful and life-affirming stories through stunning dance.
