The irresistible dancers of Ailey are back after a two-year absence with a dazzling array of offerings including a world premiere by Miami native, Artistic Director Robert Battle, co-commissioned by the Adrienne Arsht Center’s 10@10 series. Battle uses his taut, ritualistic style to powerful effect in this dance that expertly balances chaos and resolution, dissonance and harmony. “Awakening,* his first new work since becoming artistic director in 2011, is set to a symphonic score by frequent collaborator John Mackey. The Company’s all-star lineup will also include new works by some of today’s most acclaimed choreographers, as well as Ailey classics including the perennial crowd-pleaser Revelations, which will close every performance. Tickets range from $25 to $120.
