With its “urgent and expressive choreography” (The New York Times), Kyle Abraham’s brilliant company returns with an enticing program that includes the world premiere of the choreographer’s newest solo for himself, accompanied by a live gospel choir. Also on tap is Show Pony, a recent solo work by Abraham performed alternately by Princess Grace Award recipients Tamisha Guy and Marcella Lewis; and Big Rings, a dynamic group work created by A.I.M member Keerati Jinakunwiphat. The company premiere of Trisha Brown’s groundbreaking 1976 work Solo Olos rounds out the program.
The opening night performance will feature a one night only special guest appearance by American Ballet Theatre principal dancer Misty Copeland performing a work created by Abraham.
