A.I.M by Kyle Abraham - A lecture/demonstration

This program includes demonstrations of the company’s unique methods of invention, from initial movement generation to the end result. Excerpts from several works by Kyle Abraham, and a section of Big Rings, choreographed by company member Keerati jinakunwiphat, will be shown.

Led by choreographer and MacArthur Fellow Kyle Abraham, A.I.M by Kyle Abraham is a contemporary dance company whose work is galvanized by Black culture and history. Made in conjunction with artists across a range of disciplines, Abraham’s dances entwine a sensual and provocative vocabulary with a strong emphasis on music and visual art.

A.I.M lecture/demonstrations are hands-on, active, informative, and most of all fun. Company members demonstrate the explorative creative process of our current repertory by sharing our unique methods of invention, from initial movement generation to the end result.

Here is the evening’s program.
