Pillow Lab: In Process with Kyle Abraham’s A.I.M | Showing: December 1 at 2pm
Founded by Jacob’s Pillow Dance Award Winner and MacArthur “Genius” Kyle Abraham, A.I.M returns to Jacob’s Pillow in development of THE UNTITLED D’ANGELO PROJECT. This evening-length work explores the concept of ‘Black Love’ through the lens of GRAMMY Award-winning R&B legend D’Angelo’s 2014 album Black Messiah and a creative process that celebrates love and unity in the black community with multi-generational conversations.
Aligning with the company’s mission, Abraham’s work focuses on the African-American communal experience, and its intersection with the personal or individual experience. For THE UNTITLED D’ANGELO PROJECT, Abraham dives into a specific aspect of black culture in the United States—‘Black Love’—exploring its many and various definitions within the community and individually, through movement joined with R&B music, and the visual art of Titus Kaphar and Mickalene Thomas, both of whose works contemplate issues surrounding race.
