about

Here…Now., is a ballet choreographed by Judith Jamison for the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. The piece is dedicated to and inspired by the triple Gold medalist at the 1988 Olympics, runner Florence Griffith Joyner, “Flojo”, who died of an epileptic seizure at the age of 38. Wynton Marsalis’ specially commissioned music is edgy and frenetic reflecting the pace of athletes in training and competition, themes also reflected in Judith Jamison’s choreography. Costumer Emilio Sosa captured Flojo’s glamour with her six inch nails and colorful running clothes, and Al Crawford’s brilliantly abstract lighting and set evoked the actions in and around the track.
