I watched this clip from an Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre performance. I had no prior knowledge of what the dance was about, nor what the song was. Yet, I somehow grasped the meaning of this performance, and not because of any innate understanding of dance. What is it about the choreography, the costumes, the props, the dancers themselves, that opened my eyes?

I'll post my thoughts on this in a later post.

I've seen them perform this live before. It's a gorgeous dance.
