For Immediate Release

Celebrated choreographer Kyle Abraham brings Abraham. In. Motion’s Pavement to the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo Performing Arts Center on Tuesday, February 24, at 7:30 pm.

“Kyle Abraham’s work explores his diverse training in classical music, visual art, and a multitude of dance forms from ballet to hip-hop to give range and depth to his sleek, evocative style,” said PAC Manager Lee Dombroski.

“Abraham. In. Motion’s (A.I.M.) mission is to create an evocative, interdisciplinary body of work. Born into hip-hop culture in the late ‘70s and grounded in Abraham’s artistic upbringing in classical cello, piano and visual arts, the Movement’s goal is to delve into identity in relation to a personal history.

“The work A.I.M. is bringing to UH Hilo draws its inspiration from John Singleton’s 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 Kris Kross/backward jeans and hightop fade era in hip-hop while reflecting on the growth and loss of Pittsburgh’s historically black neighborhoods, Homewood and the Hill District.”
