People routinely use big words to describe performances by the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. It’s not a dance troupe so much as a group of “cultural ambassadors” doing “landmark” work, especially performances of the group’s signature work, the “masterpiece,” Revelations. These days, Alvin Ailey is firmly ensconced in the cultural canon, and seeing the group on stage has become a rite of cultural passage. Revelations is included in each performance. Don’t miss this chance to see them wow Detroit audiences.
