Choreographed by Kyle Abraham
Abraham doesn’t let us off that easy and I’m glad.
I was captivated. The technical precision and freshness of form was divine. And then there was the music, Bach and Vivaldi – I didn’t see that coming and it was treat. I felt a sense of deep satisfaction in the bringing together of classical rhythm and Abraham’s hip hop aesthetic. The dance told a history and asked questions about our present moment. This is a present struggling to make sense of what has happened to our streets and the “law and order” that keeps repeating.
