SOLD OUT!!!!Tickets on SALE NOW!!! Ailey II: The Next Generation of Dance, $41 & Up @ the Rialto Center for the Arts, Performance Date: Sat, Oct 21(One show only) 8pm KNOW More: http://rialto.gsu.edu/ Merging the spirit and energy of the country’s best young dance talent with the passion and creative vision of today’s outstanding choreographers, Ailey II has become universally renowned as one of the world’s finest dance companies. Ailey II continues the legacy of founder Alvin Ailey, delivering pristine performances with dynamic movement and dazzling technique. Dance Magazine calls Ailey II "second to none," and The New York Times declares, "There's nothing like an evening spent with Ailey II…” Especially when it’s at the Rialto! Atlanta's very own Choreographer, Juel Lane, will be creating a new work for the company. Lane, an alumnus of Tri-Cities High School and Youth Ensemble of Atlanta (YEA), was selected to participate in the 2015-16 Alvin Ailey Dance Foundation New Directions Choreography Lab that was curated by the company’s Artistic Director, Robert Battle.
2 World Premieres:
*Juel D. Lane’s Touch & Agree explores what it is to be in love and how we commit to another person without losing our own identity. To do this, Lane brings his personal experiences as a black gay man to the stage, using such wide-ranging musical sources as Sam Cooke, James Blake, H.E.R., and Byrell the Great. The Atlanta native’s unique style fuses contemporary, African, and hip-hop – bringing a fresh choreographic perspective to the ups and downs of relationships today.
**Jamaican-born choreographer Renee I. McDonald’s Breaking Point is an intense depiction of the fight for our heart’s desire. Whether it is love, friendship, forgiveness, or a secret longing – these things can take us to our limit. Suitably paired with the bold and pulsating sounds of Audiomachine, McDonald’s high-powered, modern-based choreography captures the willpower and frenzy it takes to keep up “the fight” until you hit your breaking point.
