A.I.M By Kyle Abraham Presents "Requiem: Fire in the Air of the Earth"
A.I.M By Kyle Abraham
Choreographer and MacArthur Fellow Kyle Abraham and pioneering producer, composer, and electronic dance music artist Jlin have joined forces to create Requiem: Fire in the Air of the Earth, a new work exploring death and reincarnation through a reimagining of Mozart’s Requiem in D minor.
Jlin transforms Mozart’s music into an electronic opus that memorializes ritual, mourning, and rebirth, and performs it live onstage with ten dancers from Abraham’s company—A.I.M by Kyle Abraham.
This is the first New York presentation of the piece, which was co-commissioned by Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts; the Boston Celebrity Series; International Summer Festival Kampnagel; Stanford University; and the University Musical Society of the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
