“Both kinetic and poetic...the choreographer’s range is vast.” Financial Times
MacArthur “genius” choreographer Abraham turns from the political—as in When the Wolves Came In, at the Hop in 2015—to themes of love, longing and loss, inspired by conversations with people of varied ages and backgrounds (including at the Hop last summer). His eloquent contemporary movement vocabulary shines in a series of lush solos and duets.
Program contains nudity.
