Kyle Abraham/Abraham.In.Motion Dance Company

Location: UH Hilo Performing Arts Center

John Singleton’s film, Boyz N The Hood had a profound effect on 14 year-old Kyle Abraham. Now, reimagined as a dance work and set in Pittsburgh’s historically black neighborhoods, Homewood and the Hill District, Pavement aims to create a strong emotional chronology of a culture conflicted and a history plagued by discrimination, and a constant quest for a lottery ticket weighted in freedom. As two rivaling neighborhoods, their histories run parallel. Both experienced a cultural shift in the 1950s when jazz legends like Ella Fitzgerald and Duke Ellington performed at local theaters. Over half a century later, those same theaters are now dilapidated, and the streets that once flourished on family run businesses and a booming jazz scene, now show the sad effects of gang violence and crack cocaine.

Kyle Abraham/Abraham.In.Motion’s work intertwines a sensual and provocative vocabulary with a strong emphasis on sound, human behavior and all things visual in an effort to create an avenue for personal investigation.
