Ailey Film Screening + Choreographic Forum



Sensorial and archival-rich, AILEY captures the brilliant and enigmatic man who, when confronted by a world that refused to embrace him, was determined to build one that would. The Society for Dance Research and Kauma Arts would like to invite you to the Cube for a Choreographic Forum. Join us for a lively symposium on the role of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre Company in fostering participation and visibility of Black and African Diaspora communities in the dance industry, its impact in the UK and its resonance with today's dance ecology in Bristol!
