Mixed Program

August 2 @ 8 PM

Starting at 40 $

Kyle Abraham is a star choreographer on the New York scene. The winner of numerous awards, including the prestigious MacArthur Prize, he is courted by the world’s greatest companies, from the Royal Ballet to the New York City Ballet. Virtuosic, elegant and explosive, his dance identity is energised by African-American culture and history. Each of his works, a unique blend of hip-hop, post-modern dance and jazz, is expected to be an event. For the first visit to Saint-Sauveur of his company, A.I.M., made up of 10 glorious dancers, he offers us an anthology of emblematic pieces from his repertoire: three works bear his signature (5 Minute Dance (You Drivin’?), Show Pony and MotorRover), as well as Big Rings by dancer Keerati Jinakunwiphat and Rain, a solo choreographed by one of his great sources of inspiration, African-American choreographer Bebe Miller. An exceptional evening of dance.

“The movement vernacular is a mercurial amalgam that morphs through numerous genres-Modern, contemporary, ballet, hip-hop. It is a crazy , sexy, cool fusion of elite/street/afro-punkism that is a visual feast, a delicious ‘postmodern gumbo’ as he calls it.”
Dance Magazine

“It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a group of virtuoso dancers look as natural, as human, as Abraham’s company.”
The New Yorker
