Acclaimed Dance Company A.I.M by Kyle Abraham In San DiegoSee + Do “One of the most consistently excellent troupes working today” -New York Times
The January 30 repertory includes
The Quiet Dance, a quintet set to Bill Evans’s sentimental rendition of the Bernstein classic Some Other Time;
Show Pony, an energetic new piece performed by Princess Grace Award winner Marcella Lewis;
Meditation: A Silent Prayer, a group work featuring voice-over recording by Carrie Mae Weems, MFA ‘84 and visual artwork by Titus Kaphar;
Drive, a high energy, propulsive work set to thumping club beats;
A duet excerpt from Dearest Home, Kyle Abraham’s 2017 evening-length work that explores the concepts of love, longing, and loss.
Born into hip-hop culture in the late 1970s and grounded in Kyle Abraham’s artistic upbringing in classical cello, piano, and the visual arts, the goal of the A.I.M is to delve into identity in relation to a personal history.
The mission of the movement is to create an evocative interdisciplinary body of work. A.I.M is a representation of dancers from various disciplines and diverse personal backgrounds. Combined together, these individualities create movement that is manipulated and molded into something fresh and unique.
This January 30 performance is part of ArtPower’s dance series and takes place at the Balboa Theatre.
See you there!
