Kyle Abraham Performance and Q&A with Joshua Chambers-Letson
Renowned choreographer and MacArthur Fellow Kyle Abraham will perform part of a new solo work in progress. Following the performance he will be joined by performance studies scholar Joshua Chambers-Letson for a conversation exploring Abraham’s relationship to place, process, Black dance, Black music, and his lived Black experience, as well themes of queer love and loss. Abraham is featured in the exhibition Adam Pendleton: To Divide By. He is the subject of Pendleton’s film portrait What Is Your Name? Kyle Abraham, A Portrait (2018–19), one in an ongoing series of portraits that take the form of conversations between Pendleton and prominent cultural figures. Through montage and repetition, Pendleton frames Abraham as a site of plurality.
