YBCA 100 honoree, MacArthur Genius, and Doris Duke Award–winning choreographer Kyle Abraham’s company Abraham.In.Motion performs the world premiere of his newest work, DEAREST HOME.

Abraham is a breathtaking performer who is pioneering a unique choreography that combines dance with his training in music and the visual arts. He has collaborated with numerous artists, from the Alvin Ailey Dance Theater to Beyoncé. His work fuses the youthful energy of hip-hop and urban dance with a strong grounding in modern and contemporary dance.

At its core, Dearest Home is a work about love, longing, and loss. Comprised primarily of solos and duets generated through conversations, workshops, and new research into the concept of scientific empathy, Dearest Home weaves together movement and vulnerability with cross-cultural conversation and community action. In YBCA’s intimate Forum, the audience will have the choice to watch the performance with a composed score playing through headphones or with a silent score and the ambient sound of bodies moving through space.

Please note there will be no late seating for this performance.
