@mistyonpointe is presenting the legendary @judith_jamison with the “Living Legend Award” at the 2018 @blackgirlsrock .
.
Jamison performed with Alvin Ailey Dance Theater on tours of Europe and Africa in 1966. But, when financial pressures pushed Ailey to disband his company, Jamison decided to join the Harkness Ballet for several months before returning to the re-formed Alvin Ailey Dance Theater in 1989 when Mr. Ailey asked her to succeed him as Artistic Director. During her time away, she starred in the hit Broadway musical Sophisticated Ladies, and formed her own company, The Jamison Project.
.
.

Critics adored her performances and were continuously drawn to her dance interpretations that embodied not only strength, but grace as well. Jamison and Ailey collaborated on more projects, creating brilliant solo pieces such as “Masekela Language” (1969) and the timeless and electrifying performance of Ailey’s 15-minute solo “Cry” (1971), a piece that propelled Jamison to international fame that is most unheard of among modern dance artists.
.
.
The tour-de-force solo piece “Cry” was Ailey’s dedication “to all black women everywhere — especially our mothers,” and properly captured a broad range of movements, feelings, and visuals linked to black womanhood as mother, sister, lover, goddess, provider, counselor, and dancer.
