MacArthur "Genius" Award-winning Choreographer

“Abraham has created a work of great subtlety and beauty.” The New Yorker

One of the most groundbreaking and sought-after artists of recent years, Kyle Abraham creates a conversation of movement that is fresh, unique and innovative. In his newest work, Pavement, he layers urban and classical dance influences, provocative imagery and gripping, voluptuous movement. Inspired by the neighborhoods of his youth, the 1991 film Boyz n the Hood and W.E.B DuBois' classic essay "The Souls of Black Folk," Pavement pays comedic homage to the bold Kriss Kross/backward jeans/hi-top fade era in hip-hop, while reflecting on the growth and loss of Pittsburgh's historically black neighborhoods.
