Chapter Song

Choreographer: Kyle Abraham

 Created in close collaboration with the LADP Company, Chapter Song is a series of constantly shifting vignettes that explore the textures and sensations of transition. Set to an eclectic playlist, the sonic experience of Chapter Song aims to disrupt expectations and juxtapose the serious with the comedic Рthe personal with the political. This dynamic work moves quickly, much like the changing of the channels, allowing for unexpected connections and discovery.
