Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Europe 2016
Sep 2016 - Oct 2016

Introduction

Returning to the United Kingdom after an absence of six years, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater once again joins forces with Dance Consortium to present world-class performances in centres across the country. Commencing with a two-week engagement at Sadler’s Wells in London, Ailey’s irresistible dancers are showcased in stunning recent works by Rennie Harris, Ronald K. Brown and their own Artistic Director, Robert Battle, as well as much-loved masterpieces by Ailey himself.

The company’s 2016 European Tour is rounded off by further performances at the Salle Métropole in Lausanne and at Tivoli in Copenhagen, where – remarkably – Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater will be making its 15th appearance.

Tickets available here.
