What we think

At its best, it offers insight for outsiders into the opportunities for self-expression that dance affords, all while introducing you to one of the truly great practitioners of the form.

What others think

There are some absorbing testimonies from the dancers who worked with him, particularly about the ecstatic ovations his company would get on tour.
Peter Bradshaw The Guardian
Poeticism ebbs and flows throughout Wignot’s impressonistic mediation, fluctuating in parts.
Marina Ashioti Little White Lies
As a personal portrait, “Ailey” is lacking for charming anecdotes or nuggets of wisdom from the artist himself. But a true artist speaks through his work, and it’s appropriate that the revelations in “Ailey” arrive via the dance scenes.
