ciety.
Ailey, like no other choreog-
rapher in the country, expresses
the emotional and spiritual es-
sence of the American people.
Noted for his gift of using color
and materials in theatrical
space, he explored the many as-
pects of "jazz6 and the "spirit-
ual" in another enthusiastically
received Ann Arbor perform-
ance.

"8mm films should be secretly shipped from Viet-

old Harlem kids armed not with guns but with 8mm
cameras . . . 8mm smuggled out of prisons, insane

In the "Blues Suite," Ailey
combined traditional music and
vampish costumes with dramat-
ically unusual forms which have
sprung from southern blacks.
With the dancers' every thrust
and contraction, the audience
was carried into a very person-

al world which Ailey created
through scattered and impulsive
motion.
The suite segment "House of
the Rising Sun" was particular-
ly impressive in its sheer poetry
of motion. One could not help
but become emotionally involved
in the dancers' lonely agony and
desperation.
In "Backwater Blues" the use
of silence created an incredible
impact as John Parks and Sus-
an Yarborough brought on a sub-
lime tension that broke with
Parks klifting his lover offstage
in a locked embrace.
The structure of the pieces,
while exploring the motives be-
hind blues and jazz, gave a
framework for the theme of
time. For instance, Ailey span-
ned the cycle of a day by begin-
ning and ending with "'Good
morning Blues."
"Clear Songs After Rain," the
second half of the evening's pre-
sentation, was a delicate and

lyrical portrayal of the oriental
world, choreographed by Nor-
man Walker. Ailey's dancers
adapted the mannerisms of east-
ern movement with precision
and economy. The mood of this
dance was mystically ritualistic,
with striking forms and postures
that likened themselves to a
temple with its worshippers.
But, of course, the most cor-
dially received work was "Reve-
lations" in which Judith Jami-
son danced about on the stage in
her usual glory. The visual and
emotional impact of the seg-
ment "Take Me to the Water"
transported the viewer into a

deeper understanding of relig-
ious music.
The audience became more
sensitive to the pulse of the
.dancers as the dynamics and
power of the concert began to
heighten. When Parks, Freddy
Romero, and Hector Mercado
did their impeccably synchro-
nized, intense performance of
"Sinner Man," the audience was
truly emotionally and physically
stirred.
Then the whole company
emerged once again for an en-
semble work, and the audience
finally succumbed to the desire
to move. The program was
brought to a climactic close with
"Rocka My Soul in the Bosom of
Abraham."
Alvin Ailey's choreography
and dancers hit the raw emo-
tions and left a deep and lasting
impression. The performance
was an experience that will not
be easily forgotten by those for-
tunate to have seen it.
