The mission of A.I.M, under the artistic direction of choreographer Kyle Abraham, is to create an evocative interdisciplinary body of work. Born into hip-hop culture in the late 1970s and grounded in Abraham’s artistic upbringing in classical cello, piano, and the visual arts, the goal of the movement is to delve into identity in relation to a personal history. The company will present Show Pony, an energetic work choreographed by Kyle Abraham for Tamisha Guy and Marcella Lewis (Princess Grace Award Recipients 2016 and 2018, respectively), state a new trio created by the “marvelously daring” choreographer Andrea Miller (Deborah Jowitt), and INDY, a new work that marks the first full-length solo choreographed and performed by Kyle Abraham in nearly a decade. The company will also present Meditation: A Silent Prayer, an ensemble work featuring voice-over recording by Carrie Mae Weems and visual artwork by Titus Kaphar, and Drive, a high energy, propulsive work set to thumping club beats.
Post-performance discussion is Tuesday, July 16.
