About the Show

One of today’s most in-demand choreographers and winner of the Jacob’s Pillow, Doris Duke, and prestigious MacArthur “Genius” Awards, Kyle Abraham has been commissioned to create work on companies such as Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, and most recently, New York City Ballet. Born into the hip-hop culture of the late 1970s and incorporating his experience with classical cello, piano, and the visual arts into his work, Abraham has been described as “the best and brightest creative talent to emerge…in the age of Obama” (OUT Magazine). His company, A.I.M, makes its Northrop debut with a diverse range of works, including Andrea Miller’s all-female state set to Reggie Wilkins’ hypnotic electronic score; Drive, marked by Abraham’s “urgent and expressive choreography” (The New York Times); and Abraham’s first major solo in nearly a decade, INDY.

Themes

  • Choreographer Kyle Abraham intentionally offers contrasting perspectives on identity and challenges conventional views of gender and expression. What purpose might that serve in 2020? How might the intersection of race further challenge an audience’s expectations?
