Onyx digs into the origins of "Rock and Roll" revealing the Black and Brown people whose sounds, performances and personalities created this revolutionary genre. Through the setting of improvisational scores, character embodiment, and flowing phrase work, Onyx reflects on the fame, influence, appropriation and erasure that riddles the legacy of so many Black and Brown artists. Through this embodiment of history, Onyx serves to recognize and celebrate these groundbreaking musicians while widening our perspective of the Black American cultural experience.

About Kyle Marshall Choreography:
"A choreographic voice like no one else's" (New York Times).

Founded in 2014, Kyle Marshall Choreography (KMC) is a company that sees the dancing body as a container of history, an igniter of social reform, and a site of celebration. KMC believes in the creation, sharing, and teaching of dance as a way to deepen our knowledge of who we are as individuals, how we develop relationships, and ultimately societies.

KMC has performed at venues including: BAM Next Wave Festival, Jacob's Pillow Inside/Out, Joe's Pub, Roulette, Actors Fund Arts Center, The Shed, Chelsea Factory, Philadelphia's FringeArts, New Brunswick Performing Arts Center, and The New World Center. Commissions have included: Baryshnikov Arts Center, "Dance on the Lawn" Montclair Dance Festival, NJPAC and Harlem Stage. KMC has received residences from County Prep High School, 92nd St Y, CPR, the Jamaica Performing Arts Center, and MANA Contemporary Performance Residency Program. The company is currently in residence at The Center for Ballet and the Arts at NYU.

Initial research for this project was supported by a 2021 Caroline A. Hearst Choreography Fellowship from Princeton University. Onyx is co-commissioned by DanceNow, the American Dance Festival and The Joyce Theater. Gratitude goes to the Monira Foundation at MANA Contemporary and The Center for Ballet and the Arts at NYU for generous residency time to build the work.
