Abraham.In.Motion represents dancers from various backgrounds and disciplines, brought together by a shared desire to create an interdisciplinary body of work that highlights sound, human behavior, and all things visual. The mission of the program is to examine identity in relation to a personal history.
Kyle Abraham, current City Center Fellow and 2013 MacArthur Fellow, started his dance career in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. From there, he graduated to New York where he received a BFA from SUNY Purchase and an MFA from the NYU Tisch School of the Arts.
His list of accomplishments is lengthy and spans an international career, with his choreography being presented at various festivals, arts centers, and theaters worldwide. He was named the “best and brightest creative talent to emerge in New York City in the age of Obama” in 2011 by OUT Magazine. Abraham has toured and choreographed for various artistic works in addition to founding his own company, Abraham.In.Motion.
