Renee Robinson and choreographer Matthew Rushing live in The Greene Space performing an excerpt from his new ballet, ODETTA.

Our audience got an inside look at Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater’s new season on November 12 when WQXR’s Terrance McKnight sat down with Artistic Director Robert Battle and choreographer Matthew Rushing. 

They talked about Ailey’s upcoming season at New York City Center, which features the world premiere of Mr. Rushing’s ODETTA, a tribute to “the queen of American folk music.”

Watch their entire conversation below and see an excerpt of ODETTA performed live on our stage:
