A Jacob’s Pillow Dance Award winner, Doris Duke Artist Award winner, and MacArthur “Genius” Fellow, Kyle Abraham’s “skill as a dancer is a fact” (The New York Times). One of today’s most in-demand choreographers—recently the first black choreographer commissioned to create a work on New York City Ballet in over a decade—Abraham was born into hip-hop culture of the late 1970s and incorporates an artistic upbringing of classical cello, piano, and the visual arts into his work.
After embracing a different identity for his company, A.I.M makes its Ted Shawn Theatre debut performing a mixed repertory program that demonstrates the company’s diverse range of styles and Abraham’s own artistry as a performer with INDY, his first major solo in nearly a decade. A.I.M’s dynamic dancers perform Andrea Miller’s all-female state set to Reggie Wilkins’ hypnotic electronic score, as well as Show Pony, The Quiet Dance, and Drive, marked by Abraham’s “urgent and expressive choreography” (The New York Times).
