A.I.M by Kyle Abraham: An Untitled Love
A Visions and Voices Signature Event

“The movement vernacular is mercurial amalgam that morphs through numerous genres—modern, contemporary, ballet, hip-hop. It is a crazy, sexy, cool fusion of elite/street/Afro-punkism that is a visual feast.”—Dance Magazine
Deemed by The New York Times to be “one of the most consistently excellent troupes working today,” contemporary dance company A.I.M by Kyle Abraham provides multifaceted performances, educational programming, and community-based workshops across the globe. Led by acclaimed choreographer and artistic director Kyle Abraham’s innovative vision, the work of A.I.M by Kyle Abraham is galvanized by Black culture and history, grounded in a conglomeration of unique perspectives, and described by Abraham as a “post-modern gumbo” of movement exploration.
A.I.M by Kyle Abraham will perform An Untitled Love, one of Abraham’s new evening-length works. Drawing from the catalogue of GRAMMY Award–winning R&B legend D’Angelo, the creative exaltation pays homage to the complexities of self-love and Black love, while serving as a thumping mixtape celebrating culture, family, and community.
Presented by USC Visions and Voices with support from our media partner, KCRW. Co-sponsored by the USC Glorya Kaufman School of Dance.
