“Technically stunning and resoundingly human.” —Post and Courier (Charleston, SC)
Movement innovator and MacArthur “Genius” Fellow Kyle Abraham draws from myriad sources (hip-hop culture, classical music, visual arts) to create his urgent, expressive choreography. Showcasing his malleable sensibility and virtuosic nine-member company A.I.M, the program includes Abraham’s intensely intimate, new solo INDY, a fleeting work of shifting personas; Drive, a hypnotizing feat of athleticism within a clublike atmosphere; and Meditation: A Silent Prayer, grounded by visual artist Carrie Mae Weems’s potent text invoking police violence against African Americans. The all-female state by Andrea Miller (Gallim) is a trio of arresting and evocative movement, while Strict Love, a mid-’90s favorite by Doug Varone, is set to music by the Jackson 5 and Diana Ross.
