Good things come in threes, so I decided to put up three more pieces performed by Ailey's company, but by other choreographers, not by Ailey himself. Actually four, but the last is Revelations, which we watch separately.

Chroma by Wayne McGregor: The Guardian wrote that the ballet's "tension between chaos and minimalism is extreme". The success of Chroma led to McGregor's appointment as resident choreographer of the Royal Ballet.

Grace: The NYT wrote: "In the 20 years since Ronald K. Brown choreographed “Grace” for Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, the work has provided such a reliable spiritual high that bliss could almost be taken for granted."

Takademe by Robert Battle: The complex, tightly woven rhythms of Indian Kathak dance are deconstructed and abstracted in this percussive, fast-paced work.

You may watch them any time at your convenience.
