Abraham.In.Motion (A.I.M) is a modern dance company whose mission is to create an evocative interdisciplinary body of work through a sensual and provocative vocabulary with a strong emphasis on sound, human behavior and all things visual. Born into hip-hop culture in the late 1970s and grounded in founder Kyle Abraham’s artistic upbringing in classical cello, piano, and the visual arts, the goal of the movement is to delve into identity in relation to a personal history. The company will perform a selection of pieces including Strict Love, The Quiet Dance and Drive. Founded in 2005 by Bessie Award winning choreographer, Joya Powell, Movement of the People Dance Company is dedicated to addressing historic and present socio-cultural injustices through dance. Primarily a dance-theater company, their choreography combines dynamic Contemporary Dance with traditional dances, and develops a sensitive balance of pedestrian gestural phrases with grounded visceral movements that use breath and musicality at its core. The company is comprised of dancers from diverse multicultural backgrounds and international experiences.
