August 4, 2013 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm

KA - PavementIMG_6392-Edit-flatbyCarrieSchneider

Kyle Abraham/Abraham-In-Motion – “Pavement” 2012 Jacob’s Pillow Dance Award recipient and 2012 USA Ford Fellow, Kyle Abraham was born into Hip Hop culture in the late 70’s and raised with an artistic upbringing that included classical cello, piano and the visual arts.  Abraham approaches movement as a way to deeply delve into identity as it relates to personal history. His work entwines a sensual and provocative vocabulary with a strong emphasis on sound, human behavior and all things visual. “Pavement” is an intensely felt and deeply moving investigation into Abraham’s experiences growing up in Pittsburgh’s historically black neighborhoods. This extended work creates a strong emotional chronology of a culture conflicted with a history plagued by discrimination, genocide, and a constant quest for a lottery ticket weighted in freedom. Recommended for Adult Audiences (16 years and older)
