Kyle Abraham is a dancer, choreographer, Artistic Director of Abraham.in.Motion, and recipient of the 2012 Jacob's Pillow Dance Award. He has worked with Bill T. Jones, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, and New York City Ballet star Wendy Whelan, and his brilliant company is a Pillow audience favorite. In his newest work, Pavement, he layers urban and classical dance influences, bold imagery, and gripping, voluptuous movement. Inspired by the Pittsburgh, PA neighborhoods of his youth, the film Boyz n the Hood, and the work of W.E.B. DuBois, Abraham and his company of striking dancers establish a poignant and provocative world onstage. A full-evening dance, Pavement includes a wide variety of music, ranging from Bach to Sam Cooke, encompassing themes of love and pain in this "work of great subtlety and beauty" (The New Yorker).
