In an unprecedented celebration of dance, Ballet Hispánico, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, New York City Ballet, and Dance Theatre of Harlem share the spotlight for the first time at Lincoln Center’s BAAND Together Dance Festival. August 17 features the following programming (*subject to change):

Ballet Hispánico
Tiburones; Choreographed by Annabelle Lopez Ochoa

In Tiburones, Annabelle Lopez Ochoa addresses the discrimination and stereotypes placed upon Latinx culture and the power the media has in portraying these themes by diminishing the voices of Latinx artists. Ochoa will deconstruct gender roles and identity to revitalize an authentic perspective of Puerto Rican icons appropriated within the entertainment industry.

New York City Ballet
In the Night; Choreographed by Jerome Robbins
After the enormous popularity of Dances at a Gathering in 1969, Jerome Robbins built on his love affair with Chopin’s piano works with In the Night. While the earlier ballet primarily uses mazurkas, waltzes, and études, In the Night, which premiered in 1970, conjures up a post-dusk scenario to four of the composer’s nocturnes. Choreographed for three couples of distinct personality, the ballet uses the music as a jumping-off point to explore subtle dance dramas.

Dance Theatre of Harlem
Change; Choreographed by Dianne McIntyre

This work is inspired by women—Black, Brown and Beige—who have refashioned the neighborhood, the country, the world through their vision, courage, and endurance. Often unsung, inconspicuous or up-front, these individuals could be called warriors for change.

Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater
Lazarus (excerpt); Choreographed by Rennie Harris

This excerpt is from the second half of Lazarus, the acclaimed work by hip-hop choreographer Rennie Harris. Lazarus, the first 2-act ballet created for the Ailey company, completes a trilogy — which also includes Exodus and Home – and is inspired by the life and times of Alvin Ailey. It addresses racial inequities in America when Mr. Ailey founded his company in 1958 as well as today. Learn more.
