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.
