Little Village - Saturday, January 28, 2017
Since Dance Magazine named him one of 2009’s “25 to watch,” Kyle Abraham has been making his mark on the dance world. Abraham has received numerous awards, and his recent work includes a pas de deux with former New York City Ballet principal Wendy Whelan, choreography for the film The Book of Henry, and a new work, Untitled America, for the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre. Iowa City was privileged to welcome his company, Abraham.In.Motion, to Hancher Auditorium for a three-part program featuring works entitled “The Quiet Dance,” “Absent Matter” and “The Gettin’.”
Daily Iowan - Wednesday, January 25, 2017
Choreographer Kyle Abraham can be ultimately summarized by its unique ability to transcend convention and push both the medium and the conversation forward. A dancer by training, Abraham incorporates elements of social justice and nods to current political and cultural movements such as Black Lives Matter in his performances. At 7:30 p.m. Friday, Abraham will arrive at the University of Iowa’s Hancher. His performance, Abraham.In.Motion, will feature the choreographer performing three of his most recent works: “The Quiet Dance,” “Absent Matter,” and “The Gettin’.”
