An Evening With the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater [videorecording]

Danmarks Radio/ZDF/RM Arts ; produced and directed by Thomas Grimm
Format
Video; DVD
Summary
In this brilliant studio recording, the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, the country's boldest and most exciting dance company, brings its distinctive style home to you--dazzling, brash and dynamic, yet graceful and poetic. Included on this DVD are two stunning dance pieces. "Divining" was Judith Jamison's first major work as a choreographer for Alvin Ailey. The dance evokes a strong feeling for African tribal ritual and is set to hauntingly rhythmic drum music. "Revelations" expresses Ailey's intense feelings for his roots in the South. Here you'll see Ailey's vivid "blood memories" of the blues, spirituals, gospel music, ragtime and folk songs, as well as the hard life of the Southern black during the Depression.
