Kyle Abraham / Abraham.In.Motion
Friday November 14, 2014 8:00 pm
Kyle Abraham / Abraham.In.Motion creates a moving and powerful portrait of urban life consumed by gang and police violence in "Pavement," a contemporary dance piece. Choreographer Kyle Abraham, a 2013 MacArthur Fellow, reflects the bold, backward-jeans and high-top-fade era of ’90s hip-hop, while examining a culture plagued by discrimination, genocide, and the constant quest for a way out. Inspired by John Singleton’s groundbreaking film "Boyz N The Hood" and the classic essays of W.E.B. DuBois’ "The Souls of Black Folk" (1903), Pavement uses movement to depict scenes of violence, love, male bonding, arrests, and physical and emotional pain. The piece is set to a soundtrack that mixes a baroque operatic score with R&B and the sounds of the city.

Enjoy the soulful celebration, the majestic journey, the whimsical and mysterious characters such as the Reggae Ragdolls, the sultry Arabian dance, the spins and leaps of the Black Russian, Mother Spice and her tumbling Spice Drops, the bubbly Coca Cola Pas de Six, and the elegant Brown Sugar and her Chocolatier. Urban Nutcracker is to the Nutcracker as what The Wiz is to the Wizard of Oz.
