Princess Grace Foundation Award recipient Bridget L. Moore’s new work Unearthed exposes the emotion and strength of motherhood and loss.
Furtherance, choreographed by former Alvin Ailey dancer Kirven Douthit-Boyd, takes the audience on a journey from anguish to bliss amid the backdrop of a Japanese taiko drum musical score.
Returning to New York in an encore presentation is, Instinct 11.1, that captures the essence and strength of Denise Jefferson. Francesca Harper created the work in honor of her mother who was the director of The Ailey School from 1984 until her death in 2010.
