Kyle Abraham’s highly anticipated work An Untitled Love is a creative exaltation that serves as a thumping mixtape celebrating culture, family, and community. Composed of the catalogue of R&B legend D’Angelo, the evening-length work is an ode to Abraham’s intense, personal connection with the Grammy Award-winning artist’s music. In his own words, Abraham explains, “That love has never waned. D’Angelo’s music has played an integral part in my deep appreciation for the richness of Soul – R&B music. Within his music exists the histories and Neo-romanticism of Black love in America.”
A Jacob’s Pillow Dance Award winner, Doris Duke Artist Award winner, and a MacArthur Fellow, Kyle Abraham is one of today’s most in-demand choreographers.

An Untitled Love is a Pillow co-commission and has been developed through two residencies in the Pillow Lab.
