The Alvin Ailey Dance Theatre has produced numerous shows in the lastfew years (Juwar74, 2007). I was highly impressed by the performanceof Wade in the Water from “Revelations.” In this essay, I willshow that the piece was captivating since it had a harmonious tuneand was well-choreographed.
The piece was well-choreographed and directed. In this regard, thedancers followed intricate patterns on the platform. The whitecostumes extenuated the dancing styles used in the piece. A team ofseven dancers coordinated their routines to achieve dramatic effect.Furthermore, props were used to enrich the quality of theperformance. The seamless integration between the lead performer andthe crew members reflects the mood of the background music. Hence,the fluid nature of the dancing styles was captivating.
In addition, the piece had a delightful tune that aligned with theintended message. The background music created a rising tempo. Hence,the audience is placed in intense suspense while awaiting subsequentwords and tunes. The voices heard in the background combined to forma harmonious tune. The combination of male bass and female tenorportrays the wholesome nature of the piece. Moreover, the stagedirections were quite artistic. Ingenuous tactics were used to mimicwater. The dancers seemed to float on water while fulfilling theirroutines. Consequently, this creates an awesome visual appeal.
Indeed, the piece was quite entertaining since the dancers werewell-organized and the melody was quite harmonious. The dancers weregraceful in their performance while coordinating their movements. Thebackground music was also harmonious. Besides, the stage directionswere quite artistic and captivating.
