Awakening  | Thespie

Choreographer Robert Battle uses his taut, ritualistic style to powerful effect in a dance that expertly balances chaos and resolution, dissonance and harmony. Set to a symphonic score by frequent collaborator John Mackey, Awakening was Battle's first new work since becoming artistic director of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Company in 2011.
