Add to Calendar 01-08-2013 01-08-2013 15 Kyle Abraham & Abraham.in.Motion: Pavement / The Living Word Project: Marc Bamuthi Joseph's Word Becomes Flesh Two edgy, increasingly honored young choreographers grapple with history, masculinity, and shifting identities, creating sensual, sonically compelling works. In Pavement, Abraham and his company Abraham.In.Motion re-imagine Boyz N The Hood as a dance work set in Pittsburgh's historically black neighborhoods. The piece pays comedic homage to the backward jean and high top fade era in hip hop, while creating a strong emotional chronology of a culture burdened by discrimination, genocide, and a constant quest for a lottery ticket weighted in freedom. Inspired by letters that essayist, educator, and choreographer Marc Bathumi Joseph penned to his unborn child, Word Becomes Flesh is a fluid choreopoem that uses text, dance and live music to document pregnancy from a young single father's perspective, incorporating ritual, archetypes, and symbolic sites within hip hop culture. The piece critically, lyrically, and choreographically examines race, male privilege, and the fraught concept of fatherhood. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=136820 Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts true DD/MM/YYYY
