The First Ailey Dancers: Ella Thompson, Nat Horne & Dorene Richardson

August 14, 2019 6:00pm - 7:30pm

On Sunday, March 30th, 1958 Alvin Ailey gave his first NYC concert at the 92nd St. Y where he debuted one of his signature pieces, ‘Blues Suite’.  Many of the best dancers in the city performed that day.  Don’t miss the opportunity to hear three of these amazing artists – Ella Thompson Moore, Nat Horne and Dorene Richardson  – share memories of this auspicious (incredible) performance.  

Ella Thompson Moore appeared in Alvin Ailey’s first concert at the 92nd Street Y, NYC in 1958. She began her dance training in Washington, D.C. While attending Howard University and received a scholarship to the Katherine Dunham School in New York City where she studied dance with Syvilla Fort, Walter Nicks, where she met and married Charles Moore in 1960.

She appeared in ten Broadway shows. As a member of The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre, she performed in the U.S., the Far East, and Australia.  Ella later performed with Dances and Drums of Africa, her husband’s company, in addition to assuming teaching and management duties and holding company rehearsals.

Nat Horne was one of the original members of Alvin Ailey’s company when Alvin choreographed “Blues Suite” (Premiering 1958) and “Revelations” (1960). Rehearsals were in the basement at Clark Center for the Performing Arts. Inspired by a Gene Kelly movie, as a boy Nat knew he was born to dance and dreamed of going to New York and being in the chorus of a Broadway show (not a star, but a chorus boy). In the Army, Nat became the first African-American to become an official member of Special Services (the military entertainment corps). Nat’s greatest influences were Jack Cole & Matt Mattox. He performed in 9 Broadway shows, and has appeared on TV and in film. In the 1970’s, Nat taught at the Ailey School as well as his namesake The Nat Horne Musical Theatre and School. Nat has taught & choreographed in countries around the world. To preserve his legacy, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts Library has requested his personal archives.

Dorene Richardson, a New York native, began studying dance at the age of 13 at the New Dance Group. Her teachers included Donald McKayle, Muriel Manning and Jane Dudley, for whom she demonstrated.  She went on to study at Juilliard and danced with small companies including Natanya Newman and Donald McKayle. She was the only dancer who performed in Alvin Ailey’s two concerts at the 92nd Street Y, the first in 1958 and the next in 1960.  Dorene taught at the Ailey school, and for 30 years, she taught at the New Dance Group.

Jill Williams was affiliated with the Clark Center for over 15 years; first as a student and then as a member of the esteemed faculty. She studied with Thelma Hill, James Truitte, Charles Moore, Pepsi Bethel, Lenore Latimore and Betram Ross. She was also trained by and worked with Kathy Stanford Grant in Pilates. For the past six years, she has been immersed in extensive research at the NYPL, and conducting oral histories for the project, Clark Center NYC.

Directed by Donna Deitch | 1985

With Helen Shaver, Patricia Charbonneau, Audra Lindley

Director Donna Deitch had to resort to selling her house to raise money for this ravishing landmark of queer cinema, which draws from Douglas Sirk and foreshadows Todd Haynes’ Carol.

Omar / Nakhane / DJ Wildcat

August 14, 2019 7:00pm - 9:00pm

British soul singer Omar Lye-Fook was likely always destined to be a musician. The son of Byron Lye-Fook, a studio musician and drummer who worked with the likes of Bob Marley and the Rolling Stones, Omar was classically trained at London’s Guildhall School of Music, and plays the trumpet, piano and percussion. Considered by some to be the ‘father’ of British neo soul, his throwback sound appeared to be ahead of its time, proving to be more influential in the canon than on the charts—he counts India.Arie, Erykah Badu, and his idol, Stevie Wonder among his fans. Since his debut album There’s Nothing Like This (1990), he’s dabbled in ragga, hip-hop, funk, jazz-pop, rock, and Caribbean dance sounds. He’s joined by Nakhane, a London-based Xhosa polymath who has published a novel (Piggy Boy Blues) and acted in a feature film (Inxeba, or “The Wound”) in addition to his musical output. But it’s his music that soars highest, with an unmistakable voice that floats over experimental electro pop compositions with lyrics that—like much of his other work—tackle the subject of queer identity in conservative society, like his recent duet with ANOHNI, “New Brighton.”

Van Hunt / &More (Chill Moody & Donn T)

August 15, 2019 12:00pm

The genre-defying Van Hunt serves up the unique mix of R&B, soul, funk, and rock that earned him a place touring alongside artists like Kanye West, the Roots, Coldplay, Mary J. Blige, and Dave Matthews Band. The Grammy-nominated Hunt brings his charisma, crafty songwriting, and engaging live performance to the MetroTech stage. Donn T, Questlove’s sister, and rapper Chill Moody, who come together in the new hip-hop and R&B collective &More open. As in their recent single “WHOA”—featuring Public Enemy’s Chuck D—&More takes on issues of power, social justice, and love with sleek melodies and pulsing beats.

Kamikaze Hearts

August 15, 2019 7:00pm

Directed by Juliet Bashore | 1986

With Tigr, Sharon Mitchell, Jon Martin

Juliet Bashore’s quasi-documentary plunge into the 1980s porn industry takes an unsparing look at issues of misogyny, drug abuse, and exploitation via the story of two women—the naive Tigr and the magnetic, imperious Sharon Mitchell—caught in a toxic romance. By turns mesmerizing and unsettling, Kamikaze Hearts is both a fascinating record of pre-gentrification San Francisco’s X-rated underground and an intense, searing love story.

School Daze

August 15, 2019 8:30pm

Directed by Spike Lee | 1988

With Laurence Fishburne, Giancarlo Esposito, Tisha Campbell-Martin, Spike Lee

Lee’s audacious follow-up to She’s Gotta Have It follows a self-styled radical (Fishburne) at the historically black Mission College—a stand-in for Lee’s reallife alma mater Morehouse—as he tries to shake up the campus’ political conscience and clashes with the Gamma Phi Gamma fraternity. Bursting with energetic musical numbers (including a memorable beauty parlor showdown over black hair styles), School Daze pulls off a deft mix of comedy and commentary, touching insightfully on colorism, class, and African-American identity.

True Love

August 15, 2019 9:30pm

Directed by Nancy Savoca | 1989

With Annabella Sciorra, Ron Eldard, Aida Turturro

Marriage, Bronx style: an Italian-American couple endure a rocky path to the altar—with plenty of interference from their colorful families along the way—in this brash, raucous anti-romantic comedy. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance, Nancy Savoca’s debut feature is hilarious and wise in its brutally honest depiction of not-quite-fairy-tale love.

Johnny Guitar

August 16, 2019 10:00am

Directed by Nicholas Ray | 1954

With Joan Crawford, Sterling Hayden, Mercedes McCambridge

“one of the boldest and most stylized films of its time, quirky, political, twisted.”
—Roger Ebert

Joan Crawford stars as Vienna, a defiant saloon-owner under fire from an angry mob, in this wonderfully strange psychological Western. Sterling Hayden arrives on the scene as Johnny Guitar, her retired gunslinging former lover, but it is Vienna’s showdown against the jealous business owner Emma Small (McCambridge) that steals the show. The battle of wills pits Crawford’s cold fury against McCambridge’s impassioned anger, while beneath the colorful Western style is a portrait of McCarthy-era politics and the cost of, and compulsion to, “name names.”

This event is for senior citizens 65 and older and is not open to the general public.

Suffused with a moody stylishness, Near Dark follows a hapless farm boy who falls in with a band of nomadic, psychobilly vampires as they roam the Midwest plains to the synth soundscapes of Tangerine Dream.

August 18, 2019 6:00pm - 9:00pm

His first recording with Bob Marley and the Wailers, Exodus, is widely considered one of the greatest albums of all time—in any genre. Since Marley’s death in 1981, Marvin has cut four records with the group, and toured with various iterations of the band’s lineup. Marvin fronts this current lineup, playing and singing the Bob Marley & The Wailers hits the way he believes Marley intended them to be heard. He’s joined by DJ Queen Majesty, an NYC reggae selector with her own hot sauce empire.
