The New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) is hosting a virtual screening of The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theaters new dance film, “Revelations Reimagined.” NJPAC said the presentation is their way of saying thanking audiences who have enjoyed Alvin Ailey at NJPAC in the past—and a hopeful reminder of performances yet to come.
The free virtual performances will take place on Mother’s Day weekend on Saturday, May 8 at 7 p.m. and Sunday May 9 at 3 p.m.
“Revelations Reimagined” explores Revelations in a new context: past and present, on stage and off, a cultural treasure that transformed modern dance forever and continues to reinvent itself. The beloved Ailey masterpiece pays tribute to African-American heritage—“sometimes sorrowful, sometimes jubilant, but always hopeful”—and to the power of the human spirit.
