Company member and Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater Resident Choreographer Jamar Roberts offers a meditation on the beauty and fragility of life in a time of growing gun violence. We're hosting a watch party to enjoy "Ode" as a community.
"The music fit his vision: 'Ode' isn’t about gun violence, but a balm for those who have lived in its aftermath. It’s rooted in healing." - The New York Times
Like his critically-acclaimed "Members Don’t Get Weary" (2017), "Ode" features a jazz score—Don Pullen’s “Suite (Sweet) Malcolm (Part 1 Memories and Gunshots)”—and Roberts’ own costume designs.
