Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater – Odetta, Bad Blood, Caught, Revelations – San Francisco

The company has performed here annually since 1968 and considers Berkeley its home away from home, both for the synergy it feels with the Cal Performances staff and the receptive local audience.

Alvin Ailey – Polish Pieces, Awassa Astrige/Ostrich, The Pleasure of the Lesson, Revelations – New York

Although juxtaposed with several new and recently revived productions, Alvin Ailey’s Revelations looks just as good now as it did 10, 15, or even 20 years ago, and probably looks just as good as it did at its premiere, way back in 1960.
