BOSTON – February 25, 2019 – As the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater
celebrates its 60th year, Celebrity Series of Boston brings the company back to
Boston May 2-5, 2019 for its annual visit, which will include programs featuring
new works by choreographers Jessica Lang and Rennie Harris, a company
premiere by choreographer Wayne McGregor, and a full-evening program of
works by Alvin Ailey, including several rarely seen pieces. Ailey’s masterwork,
Revelations, will close out each performance program. All performances are at
the Boch Center Wang Theatre, 270 Tremont Street in Boston. (PHOTO: Samantha
Figgins and Jeroboam Bozeman by Andrew Eccles.)
Five works, including a two-act compilation of highlights from 30 years of Alvin Ailey choreography
between 1958 and 1988, will be seen on various performances during the Ailey company’s Boston run.
Below is an overview of each work with links to additional information, pictures and embeddable videos.
Rennie Harris’ world premiere, Lazarus, is the company’s first
two-act work. Inspired by the life and legacy of Alvin Ailey and
addressing 60 years of racial inequity in America from 1958 to
today, Lazarus is an ensemble work with a soundtrack that
melds Nina Simone, Terence Trent D’Arby, Michael Kiwanuka,
Odetta, original music by Darrin Ross, and Alvin Ailey’s voice.
Harris’ previous contributions to the Ailey repertory include
Exodus (2015), Home (2011), and Love Stories (2004). He is the
company’s first Artist-in-Residence, leading a range of activities
across the organization, including The Ailey School, Ailey II and
the New Directions Choreography Lab, in addition to the main
company. Lazarus will be seen on the Fri, May 3 and Sat, May
4 programs at 8 pm. (PHOTO: AAADT in Lazarus by Paul Kolnik.)

Jessica Lang’s 2018 premiere EN (pronounced “en”) marks
not only the choreographer’s 100th ballet but also her Ailey
choreographic debut. A celebratory ensemble piece set to
original music by composer Jakub Ciupinski, with costumes
by Bradon McDonald, EN is titled using a Japanese word with
multiple meanings signifying circle, destiny, fate and karma.
Lang says the work “reflects on the universal experience of
coming full circle and, as time passes, recognizing the people
we meet along life’s journey who play a part in the fate and
destiny of our lives." Lang has created original works for
major companies around the world with choreography that
has a wide range of influences, visual art, theatrical lyricism, the geometry of the human body, and the
nuances of bodily gesture. EN will be seen on the Thu, May 2 and Sun, May 5 programs. (PHOTO:
AAADT in EN, Paul Kolnik)
Ailey is the first American company to perform Wayne McGregor’s Kairos, which is set to Vivaldi’s The
Four Seasons as re-imagined by experimental composer Max Richter (an artist Celebrity Series-presented
earlier this season). The work draws its title from the Greek word that means both “opportune time to
take action” and “weather.” It originally premiered in 2014 as part of the STEPS contemporary dance
festival in Switzerland. Kairos will be seen on the Thu, May 2 and Sun, May 5 programs.
The Timeless Ailey program brings new vitality to more than a dozen treasures from Mr. Ailey’s
wonderfully rich body of work, including highlights of seldom-seen gems Mary Lou’s Mass (1971) and
The Lark Ascending (1972), as well as perennial favorites like Cry (1971), Night Creature (1974) and
Memoria (1979). Other featured excerpts (in chronological order) include: Blues Suite (1958), Streams
(1970), Hidden Rites (1973), Pas de Duke (1976), Phases (1980), For Bird – With Love and Love Songs
(both 1984), and Opus McShann (1988). Timeless Ailey will be performed Sat, May 4 at 2 pm only.
Alvin Ailey’s masterpiece, Revelations, closes each
performance. Since its creation in 1960, Revelations has been
seen by more audiences around the world than any other
modern work, inspiring generations with powerful storytelling
and soul-stirring spirituals. From the opening notes of the
plaintive “I Been ’Buked” to the rousing “Wade in the Water”
and the triumphant finale, “Rocka My Soul in the Bosom of
Abraham,” Revelations pays homage to the rich African-
American cultural heritage and explores the emotional
spectrum of the human condition. (Photo: AAADT in
Revelations, Nan Melville)
“Alvin Ailey forever changed the American landscape by raising up the lives and cultural heritage of
African-Americas for all to see, opening the hearts and minds of people of every background, and
elevating the world of the performing arts,” said Robert Battle. “During this milestone season, we honor
Alvin Ailey’s storied legacy with performances across North America. What Mr. Ailey gave us is more
than a repertory and a tradition. It is a movement, a direction, a desire, a conviction that if the spirit is
to live it must rise. We dedicate our 60th Anniversary to the next ascent.”

“Two things we count on each spring in Boston are the start of the Red Sox season and the return of
Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater,” says Celebrity Series Executive Director Gary Dunning, “Last year
we marked Ailey’s 50th anniversary of their first Boston visit and their longtime collaboration with
Celebrity Series. This year, the company’s 60th anniversary is front and center, honoring the career and
life of Mr. Ailey, without whose vision we would not have more than a half century of collective
memories. We look forward to works reflecting his stunning legacy and we wish the company a happy
60th anniversary.”

Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, recognized by U.S. Congressional resolution as a vital American “Cultural
Ambassador to the World,” grew from a now-fabled March 1958 performance in New York that changed forever the
perception of American dance. Founded by Alvin Ailey, recent posthumous recipient of the Presidential Medal of
Freedom – the nation’s highest civilian honor, and guided by Judith Jamison beginning in 1989, the Company is now led
by Robert Battle, whom Judith Jamison chose to succeed her on July 1, 2011.
Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater has performed for an estimated 25 million people in 71 countries on 6 continents
– as well as millions more through television broadcasts, film screenings, and online platforms - promoting the
uniqueness of the African-American cultural experience and the preservation and enrichment of the American modern
dance tradition. In addition to being the Principal Dance Company of New York City Center, where its performances
have become a year-end tradition, the Ailey company performs annually at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, the
John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC, the Auditorium Theatre in Chicago, the Adrienne
Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County in Miami, The Fox Theatre in Atlanta, Zellerbach Hall in
Berkeley, CA and at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark (where it is the Principal Resident Affiliate), and
appears frequently in other major theaters throughout the United States and the world during extensive yearly tours.
The Ailey organization also includes Ailey II (1974), a second performing company of emerging young dancers and
innovative choreographers; The Ailey School (1969), one of the most extensive dance training programs in the world;
Ailey Arts in Education & Community Programs, which brings dance into the classrooms, communities and lives of
people of all ages; and The Ailey Extension (2005), a program offering dance and fitness classes to the general public,
which began with the opening of Ailey’s permanent home—the largest building dedicated to dance in New York City,
the dance capital of the world —named The Joan Weill Center for Dance, at 55th Street at 9th Avenue in New York City.
