Purchase Professor Composes for Alvin Ailey
Broadway World writes, â€śThe 2018 Lincoln Center engagement opens on Wednesday, June 13 at 7:30pm with the Celebrate Women program, featuring works by three trailblazing female choreographers. Jessica Lang makes her Ailey choreographic debut with the world premiere of ENâ€”whose multiple meanings in Japanese signify circle, destiny, fate, and karma. A celebratory ensemble work set to original music by composer Jakub Ciupinski, with costumes by Bradon McDonald, En marks Langâ€™s 100th ballet.
Lang describes the work as â€śa somewhat collaborative story, one written by me, but influenced by the dancersâ€™ individual talents and the aura of the Ailey company more generally.â€ť
