2013 MacArthur Fellow Kyle Abraham is a Princess Grace and Bessie Award-winning choreographer whose work is often characterized by a sensual and provocative movement vocabulary combined with a strong emphasis on sound. With the return of his acclaimed Abraham.In.Motion to The Joyce this season, he celebrates that love of sound and, specifically jazz, by treating audiences to the company's first-ever live music program. The works seen during this engagement include The Gettin', featuring music by Grammy Award-winning jazz artist Robert Glasper and his trio, who reimagine Max Roach's We Insist! Freedom Now Suite; The Quiet Dance, a fluid, smooth and silky work set to the equally smooth sounds of Leonard Bernstein's Some Other Time, arranged by Bill Evans and performed by acclaimed pianist Kris Bowers; and the New York premiere of Abstract Matter, a new work created in collaboration with Bowers, Blue Note recording artist Otis Brown III, lighting designer Dan Scully, and costume designer Karen Young.
