A.I.M by Kyle Abraham
Kyle Abraham’s highly anticipated work "An Untitled Love" was a creative exaltation that served as a thumping mixtape celebrating culture, family, and community. Composed of the catalogue of R&B legend D’Angelo, the evening-length work was an ode to Abraham’s intense, personal connection with the Grammy Award-winning artist’s music. In his own words, Abraham explained, “That love has never waned. D’Angelo’s music has played an integral part in my deep appreciation for the richness of Soul – R&B music. Within his music exists the histories and Neo-romanticism of Black love in America.” PROGRAM: An Untitled Love; choreography: Kyle Abraham; music: D'Angelo. Includes remarks by Kyle Abraham and Post-Show Talk with Melanie George, Kyle Abraham, Catherine Kirk, and Martell Ruffin.
