Kyle Abraham/Abraham In Motion
November 16 - November 17, 2012
Bessie Award–winner Kyle Abraham and his seven-member company, Abraham.In.Motion, dance with a highly engaging, larger-than-life style that combines influences ranging from hip-hop to ballet. The Radio Show revolves around the closure of the urban Pittsburgh radio station that Abraham grew up listening to and sets the stage for an exploration of cultural identity, personal history and the heartbeat of a neighborhood. The musical score mixes together recordings of classic soul and hip-hop with contemporary classical compositions by Ryoji Ikeda and Alva Noto. Free preperformance talks with dance critic Debra Cash. Free postperformance Q&A with the company Friday, November 16.
