Ailey Unveils Festa Barocca
Judith Jamison, AAADT Artistic Director, and Mauro Bigonzetti, Choreographer
Soloist Hope Boykin is featured along with two pas de deux beautifully danced by Clifton Brown
and Gwynenn Taylor Jones and Glenn Allen Sims and Linda Celeste Sims.
Energized by the emotional commitment of the dancers, Bigonzetti originally planned to use a number of the AAADT dancers
but could not stop before adding all 31 into his new ballet Festa Barocca, which tells the story of a festive party.
Color, light and vibrant fabric spill across the stage, supplemented by the energetic constant movement of the ensemble.
