Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater
– Tuesday, July 26 at 7:00 p.m. local time
(originally
broadcast on October 22, 2015)

Chroma, Grace,
Takademe, and Revelations

Chroma: The groundbreaking
contemporary ballet by British choreographer Wayne McGregor is full of
sensory surprises: sumptuous movement, a driving score by Joby Talbot
with orchestrations of songs by The White Stripes, and a luminous set by
minimalist architect John Pawson.

Grace: One of the most popular works
in the Ailey repertoire, Ronald K. Brown’s spellbinding Grace is
a fervent tour de force depicting individuals on a journey to the
promised land. This spiritually-charged work is a rapturous blend of
modern dance and West African idioms. The movements alternate fluidly
between extremes, with eruptions of power coupled with lightness and
serenity.

Takademe: Artistic Director
Robert Battle’s bravura work mixes humor and high-flying movement in a
savvy deconstruction of Indian Kathak dance rhythms. Clear shapes and
propulsive jumps mimic the vocalized syllables of Sheila Chandra’s
syncopated score.

Revelations: This is your chance to
experience an iconic masterpiece of American dance: Alvin Ailey’s Revelations,
described by The New York Times as “one of the great works of the
human spirit.” This stunning, soulful production draws on
African-American spirituals.

Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater’s Revelations, Chroma, Grace, and
Takademe for Lincoln Center at the Movies: Great American
Dance is supported by a grant from Howard Gilman Foundation.

Ballet Hispánico – Tuesday,
August 2 at 7:00 p.m. local time
(originally broadcast on
November 12, 2015)

CARMEN.maquia and Club
Havana

CARMEN.maquia: Hailed as a
“masterpiece” by the Chicago Sun-Times, choreographer Gustavo
Ramírez Sansano’s CARMEN.maquia is a Picasso-inspired,
contemporary take on Bizet’s classic opera about a passionate gypsy.
Riveting from start to finish, the physically charged and sensual
choreography fuses contemporary dance with nods to the Spanish paso
doble and flamenco.

Club Havana: Ballet Hispánico
will “whisk us away to contemporary dance’s hottest spot” (Washington
Post
) in this imaginative and theatrical showcase of Latin-inspired
dancing at its best. In Club Havana, the intoxicating rhythms of
the conga, rumba, mambo, and cha cha are brought to life by
choreographer Pedro Ruiz, a native of Cuba, in this reimagined nightclub
populated by virtuoso dancers.

Ballet Hispánico’s production of CARMEN.maquia and Club
Havana for Lincoln Center at the Movies: Great American Dance is made
possible by Production Sponsor The Jody and John Arnhold Foundation.

San Francisco Ballet – Tuesday,
August 9 at 7:00 p.m. local time
(originally broadcast on
September 24, 2015)

Romeo & Juliet

With its passionate choreography, spine-tingling swordsmanship, and
celebrated score by Sergei Prokofiev, this colorful and emotional
retelling of Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet has packed houses
around the world. Helgi Tomasson’s bravura interpretation of the Bard’s
greatest tragedy “lifts Shakespeare’s complex and familiar language off
the gilded pages and translates it into lucid classical choreography
that is visceral, fresh and ultimately sublime.” (Huffington Post)

San Francisco Ballet’s production of Romeo & Juliet for
Lincoln Center at the Movies: Great American Dance is made possible by
Production Sponsor First Republic Bank. Additional support is provided
by Diana Dollar Knowles Foundation and Denise Sobel. The original
production of Helgi Tomasson’s
Romeo & Juliet was made
possible by the E.L. Wiegand Foundation.
