Kyle Abraham/Abraham.In.Motion presents "Dearest Home"
Dearest Home (New York Premiere)
June 29 - July 1, 2017
"Choreographer Kyle Abraham couldn't be hotter right now."-The Boston Globe
Dearest Home is an interactive dance work developed in a multi-year process focused on loving and longing, love and loss. Comprised primarily of solos and duets generated in conversation and collaboration with a variety of age groups and self-identified subcultures, the work interweaves movement, in its most vulnerable or intimate state, with cross-cultural conversation and community action.
The mission of Kyle Abraham/Abraham.In.Motion is to create an evocative interdisciplinary body of work. Born into hip-hop culture in the late 1970s and grounded in Abraham's artistic upbringing in classical cello, piano, and the visual arts, the goal of the movement is to delve into identity in relation to a personal history. The work entwines a sensual and provocative vocabulary with a strong emphasis on sound, human behavior and all things visual in an effort to create an avenue for personal investigation and exposing that on stage. A.I.M. is a representation of dancers from various disciplines and diverse personal backgrounds. Combined together, these individualities create movement that is manipulated and molded into something fresh and unique.
