A.I.M by Kyle Abraham is on a mission to make a collection of dance-based work inspired by Black culture and history. The work, which was inspired by and created in collaboration with artists from several disciplines, combines a sensual and provocative language with a heavy emphasis on music, text, video, and visual art. While A.I.M is rooted in choreographer Kyle Abraham's aesthetic vision, it draws influence from a wide range of sources and movement styles.
It has been presented in various venues in both the United States and abroad, to which it received high acclaim. A.I.M by Kyle Abraham “one of the most consistently excellent troupes working today,” by the New York Times. Kyle Abraham himself has received numerous awards for both this production and himself. The first-ever choreographic work Abraham created for A.I.M in 2006 was “Fading into Something Tangible,” which made its premiere in Pittsburgh. It was greatly successful and he went on In 2010 to create The Radio Show. It is said that this was where he "delves into identity and personal history....Creating an abstract narrative around the loss of communication, he investigates the effects of the abrupt discontinuation of a radio station on a community and the lingering effects of Alzheimer's and aphasia on a family. Abraham mixes recordings of classic soul and hip-hop with contemporary classical compositions to create an eclectic score that evokes fond memories and a passion for what is lost."
Witness the power and grace of A.I.M by Kyle Abraham as they bring their outstanding performance to the Moore Theatre in Seattle, Washington on Wednesday, the 21st of February, 2024. The show will be presented in collaboration with On the Boards.
