Kyle Abraham + LADP
img_7306.jpg

LADP welcomes Kyle Abraham into the studio to begin work on a new piece with the company. Kyle is a renowned choreographer, performer, and Artistic Director of Abraham.In.Motion - among his many accolades he is a 2016 Doris Duke Award recipient, 2013 MacArthur Fellow, 2012 USA Ford Fellow, and Creative Capital grantee.  

Kyle is recently featured among the 2017 OUT 100 - "For Kyle Abraham, the personal is always universal. His work–a synthesis of hip-hop, ballet, and contemporary dance that he calls "postmodern gumbo"–is painfully, blazingly relevant."

Stay tuned for more in-process updates via our social media platforms and look for Kyle soon as a Guest Curator on our IG.

I Feel The Earth Move - WORLD PREMIERE
22WEEK-DANCE-master675.jpg

American Ballet Theater is entering the realm of pop-up dance. As part of the company’s fall run at the David H. Koch Theater, the choreographer Benjamin Millepied will present not one, but two premieres.

Along with “I Feel the Earth Move,” set to music by Philip Glass and debuting Wednesday, Oct. 25, in the usual place — the theater’s proscenium stage — he will also present “Counterpoint for Philip Johnson.” Performed during intermission on select programs, the dance was created in homage to Philip Johnson, the architect of the building, which opened in 1964.
