Abraham.In.Motion presents: Pavement

Harbison Theatre at Midlands Technical College. 7300 College St. Irmo, SC, 29063

Fresh from a MacArthur Genius Award win, acclaimed choreographer Kyle Abraham and his company, Abraham.In.Motion, present Pavement, an urban-contemporary dance performance which tells the story of two historically black neighborhoods in Pittsburgh and their cultural ebbs and flows. Drawing from the classic hip-hop movie Boyz N the Hood and Abraham’s early years spent in his inner-city hometown, Pavement pays amusing homage to the bold, backwards-jean and faded high top styles of ‘90s hip-hop – while paying deeper tribute to a culture historically battling discrimination. Post-modern dance lovers will appreciate Abraham’s pedigree, which includes time spent with the legendary Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane company. Don’t miss what The New York Times describes as “lush movement, infectious music and magnetic dancers (the choreographer included).” Contains a brief instance of strong language. $30.
