Revelations tells the story of African-American faith and tenacity from slavery to freedom. This enduring classic is a tribute to that tradition, born out of the choreographer Alvin Ailey’s “blood memories” of his childhood in rural Texas and the Baptist Church.
Fix Me, Jesus is a nuanced, controlled, duet with virtuosic expressions of yearning and aspiration.
