Like August Wilson, Kyle Abraham draws heavily from his experiences growing up African American in Pittsburgh to create personal and culturally-referenced works. The evening's full-length performance pairs classic essays from W.E.B Du Bois’ Souls of Black Folk and John Singleton’s 1991 film, Boyz n the Hood with an operatic score layered with a brash urban landscape.
“Kyle Abraham is the biggest choreographic force coming out of Pittsburgh and has taken a prominent place as a must-see choreographer on the New York scene.” - Jane Vranish, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
