The Alvin Ailey Dance Company debuted a spectacular new work, Johan Inger‘s Walking Mad, a modern version of Ravel’s Bolero, at New York’s City Center on Friday night. The piece utilizes a moveable wall, which symbolizes the divisions between people, to evoke laughs and pull at the heart strings. The new season also includes Mauro Bigonzetti‘s Deep, a cultural fusion of African, European and American cultural influences; Kyle Abraham‘s Untitled America, a meditation on mass incarceration; and Hope Boykin‘s r-Evolution, Dream, a piece inspired by the words of Martin Luther King, Jr.
