The Hunt

About The Hunt

Description

Artistic Director Robert Battle’s athletic work for six men reveals the predatory side of human nature and the primitive thrill of the hunt.

A thundering percussion soundtrack by Les Tambours du Bronx drives the explosive movement that runs the gamut from modern sports to the rituals of the gladiators. This is Mr. Battle’s sixth work for Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.

Artistic Director Robert Battle talks about his work The Hunt
