Kyle Abraham/Abraham.In.Motion
Department of Drama
Kyle Abraham/Abraham.In.Motion
The Dance Program of the Department of Drama is happy to present Kyle Abraham/Abraham.In.Motion as the culmination of a guest artist residency. 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. The works being presented do not have mature content attached to them (in terms of nudity, profanity, etc.), however some of the works explore more mature themes.
Sat 2/13/16 8:00PM Culbreth Theatre Kyle Abraham/Abraham.In.Motion
