Amazon: Ailey Ascending - A Portrait in Motion by Anna Deavere Smith, Andrew Eccles and Judith Jamison
Dance doesn't even quite describes what you experience when you see a live performance of the Alvin Ailey America Dance Theater. It is a glorious celebration of life, death, love, community, oppression and self-expression. Each dancer stands out as an individual performance in the play each dance dramatizes, transcending time and space and what we commonly believe are the limits of human potential. This book captures only a morsel of the magic within this dance troupe, but will be something you can enjoy as often and as long as you desire. Good gifting.
