Angela’s Pulse Lead Artist
MK Abadoo is a choreographer, educator, and cultural organizer. Guided by the wisdom of Black women, she collaborates to compose dances that disrupt unjust systems of power, and invite radical vulnerability. Considered a “breakout star” by Dance Magazine’s “25 to Watch”, and one of “20 Change-Making US Artists You Should Track During 2018,” by the Clyde Fitch report, her work has been commissioned by the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and as a Fulbright Scholar with the Noyam African Dance Institute in Dodowa, Ghana. She is currently on faculty at Virginia Commonwealth University as a Visiting Arts Fellow in the Racial Equity, Arts and Culture Core of iCubed, the Institute for Inclusion, Inquiry & Innovation. Prior to this period, she performed for over a decade with Gesel Mason, Liz Lerman, Urban Bush Women, David Dorfman Dance and the Dance Exchange.
