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...)

ALL GONE WEST to Run 3/28-4/18 at Teatro CirculoALL GONE WEST to Run 3/28-4/18 at Teatro Circulo
by BWW News Desk - Feb 19, 2015

'All Gone West,' a new play by John Attanas, transports us to the New York jazz scene of the early 50's. An Army vet, in love with a secretary at CCNY, would win her by setting up a be-bop club on Ninth Avenue with the help of a black saxophonist he has befriended in the service and a couple of low-lives he has met along the way. The couple's story is one of dreams dashed and fulfilled; love denied and embraced. The play features a cast of six plus a live, four-piece jazz ensemble. Jonathan Fluck, former Executive Director of IRT Theatre, will produce and direct the play's world premiere run March 28 to April 18, 2015 at Teatro Circulo, 64 East 4th Street (East Village).
