Peaceful Protest Finds New Feet

Even before the first strains of Kendrick Lamar’s galvanizing “Alright” fell over the stage, company dancers from Abraham.In.Motion were taking a stand, and then some, on the evolving politics of black identity.

Kyle Abraham's slippery, truthful take on civil rights in 'Wolves'

Fluidity marks the work of choreographer Kyle Abraham, fluidity of feeling, perception, movement. That protean force, applied to the outrageously long-lived issue of black people's civil rights, produces a major work of truth-telling American art in "When the Wolves Came In," through Sunday at the Museum of Contemporary Art.

Dancing to Beat the Reaper

Seated at a piano in a corner of the Joyce Theater, Kris Bowers begins to play a quiet, rippling tune—familiar yet unfamiliar. Beside the instrument and close to the front rows of spectators, Kyle Abraham performs a prelude to his company’s season, never moving outside a muted spotlight’s beam. Just as Bowers dreamily reconfigures “Some Day My Prince Will Come”— making it come apart the way paper does in water and then floating the pieces into proximity—Abraham redesigns the human body, making it move in ways most of us don’t.

The most art you can experience in Times Square on a Monday

Do you ever find yourself walking through Times Square, dodging Elmos and thinking: Damn, there's a lot of naked commercialism around. Wouldn't it be great if there were an intergenerational improv workshop happening right here?

You'd think that winning just about every big prize the American grant-making community offers would put to rest any financial anxiety plaguing choreographer Kyle Abraham. Close to a million dollars in cash and in-kind services between 2012 and 2018 should take care of his dance company's money worries, you'd expect, at least for a while. But you'd be wrong.
