DEAREST HOME (avant premiere)
April 1, 2017
MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship awardee, choreographer and dance artist Kyle Abraham comes to ASU Gammage for the avant premiere of DEAREST HOME (working title), an interactive dance focused on Love and Loving. Abraham’s beautiful, visceral, and unique signature choreography is alive and well in this moving and lush set of mostly solos and duets generated in conversation and collaboration with people of many ages and subcultures. DEAREST HOME interweaves movement, in its most vulnerable or intimate state with an interest in cross-cultural conversation and community action to create an open dialogue on how different demographics view and converse on topics rooted in love and the absence of love.
REASON TO SEE IT:
Kyle Abraham is simply one of the most compelling artists creating dance works today. His rare gift lies in the ability to be completely relevant, exciting and moving through the language of dance...a movement poet, a visceral social commentator...for any audience. He is changing the idea of what dance performance is and can be for people from all walks of life.
EXCLUSIVE AFTER PARTY FOLLOWNG THE PERFORMANCE
