"['Walking Mad'] by Johan Inger, set to music by Maurice Ravel and Arvo Pärt. A man meets a woman hanging out her laundry, and a surreal dream tumbles onto the stage. A giddy romp with ingenious use of a big wall and doors. Invigorating and fun.”
- Dance Magazine

Alvin Ailey was only 29 years old when he choreographed 'Revelations' in 1960. He drew inspiration for the ballet from many sources: memories of attending Baptist Church services in Texas as a child, interest in Brueghal‘s paintings, Oriental Theater, and his acquaintances with African-American writers James Baldwin and Langston Hughes.

“In [Alvin Ailey's] 'Revelations'…the dancers know exactly who they are, and it shows in the exuberant detail of their body language. Not only does the piece not date, it makes the spirituals of the score seem universal.” - The Boston Globe
