Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater is back in Copenhagen at the Tivoli Concert Hall. The world-famous dance company returns to Tivoli with new creations that has not previously been performed in Denmark.
Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater grew from a now-fabled performance in March 1958 at the 92nd Street Y in New York City. Led by Alvin Ailey and a group of young African-American modern dancers, that performance changed forever the perception of American dance. The Ailey company has gone on to perform for an estimated 25 million people at theaters in 48 states and 71 countries on six continents – as well as millions more through television broadcasts, film screenings, and online platforms.This performance is recommended for an international audience.
