Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

Pas de Duke is Alvin Ailey’s spirited modern dance translation of a classical pas de deux, originally created in 1976 as a showcase for Judith Jamison and Mikhail Baryshnikov. The work is comprised of five solos and duets that require extraordinary technical facility, flawless timing, and strong acting skills. Since its premiere nearly 40 years ago, it has been performed by generations of dancers who have each put their own unique twist on the choreography, and it has stood the test of time in part for how perfectly it captures the timeless sophistication of Duke Ellington's jazz music.

Judith Jamison's Divining
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

In 1984, Judith Jamison created Divining, on a major company for the first time at the request of her mentor, Alvin Ailey. Jamison wrote in her autobiography, Dancing Spirit, "Divining is mysterious, its title suggesting a search or quest." The ritualized ballet is set to a score that incorporates North African, Central African and Latin rhythms.
"The African-inspired rhythms are also Ms. Jamison’s springboard. Divining suggests an abstraction of African dance here refracted into reductive modern-dance treatment. Ms. Jamison’s perspective comes from the avant-garde, her images are streamlined, clean and striking! Ms. Jamison knows how to make movement flow through the entire body."
