Originally choreographed in 1999 for Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre. Ronald K. Brown pays tribute to Judith Jamison’s profound influence that echoes the title of Jamison’s autobiography.
Set to music by Duke Ellington, Wynton Marsalis and War, Brown’s evocative choreography uses movement from Cuba, Brazil and the United States to conjure dancing spirits who embody Jamison’s elegance, vision, dignity and generosity.
