The University Musical Society Presents Kyle Abraham, 3/13-14The University Musical Society Presents Kyle Abraham, 3/13-14
by BWW News Desk - Feb 22, 2015

Kyle Abraham and Abraham.In.Motion's work intertwines a sensual and provocative vocabulary with a strong emphasis on sound, human behavior, and all things visual. The company's work explores Abraham's diverse training in classical music, visual art, and a multitude of dance forms ranging from ballet to hip-hop. Dance Magazine has described his work as “elastic and electric, luxuriantly rippling, poetically arranged with moments of perfect stillness that arrive amid splashes of expression. His choreography wriggles energy through the body, stretches it, suspends it, and then unleashes it.” His latest work, which will be performed over two different programs, is inspired by the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation and civil rights movements in South Africa and the United States. The music includes Max Roach's epic 1960 jazz work “We Insist! (Freedom Now Suite)” as well as new music written by jazz pianist Robert Glasper and songs by Otis Redding (more...)

Rux performs Stranger on Earth with vocalist Marcelle Davies Lashley, who interprets Washington's songs, against the backdrop of an arresting video montage by Onome Ekeh. (more...)
