In a new mixed repertory program, the “magnetic dancers” of A.I.M (Siobhan Burke, New York Times) demonstrate a diverse range of choreography, all created by Artistic Director Kyle Abraham within the last two years. Repertory includes: INDY, Kyle Abraham’s first full-length solo in nearly a decade; Meditation: A Silent Prayer, a new work featuring voice-over recording by Carrie Mae Weems and visual artwork by Titus Kaphar; Drive, a high-energy, propulsive work set to thumping club beats; and a duet excerpt from Dearest Home, Kyle Abraham’s latest evening length work that explores the concepts of Love, Longing and Loss.
About Kyle Abraham
The mission of Kyle Abraham/Abraham.In.Motion is to create an evocative interdisciplinary body of work. Born into hip-hop culture in the late 1970s and grounded in Abraham’s artistic upbringing in classical cello, piano, and the visual arts, the goal of the movement is to delve into identity in relation to a personal history. The work entwines a sensual and provocative vocabulary with a strong emphasis on sound, human behavior and all things visual in an effort to create an avenue for personal investigation and exposing that on stage. A.I.M is a representation of dancers from various disciplines and diverse personal backgrounds. Combined together, these individualities create movement that is manipulated and molded into something fresh and unique.
