About the Event

Lazarus
Revelations

Discover dance’s power to bring people together and connect us all by our common humanity, when Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater returns to Northrop! A vital American cultural ambassador to the world, this beloved company celebrates the uniqueness of the African-American cultural experience. In honor of the company’s 60th anniversary in 2018, hip-hop choreographer Rennie Harris has created an hour-long, two-part work, Lazarus, exploring Ailey’s impact as well as race relations through dance, spoken word, and modern song sampling. Closing out the performance is Alvin Ailey’s 1960 signature piece, Revelations, a masterpiece of hope and redemption.

 

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts. To find out more about how National Endowment for the Arts grants impact individuals and communities, visit www.arts.gov.
