About The Hunt
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.
Generous support for this Company premiere was provided by The Pamela D. Zilly & John H. Schaefer New Works Endowment Fund and Linda Stocknoff.
