Fine Arts Center Concert Hall
UMass Amherst Campus
Inspired by the Pittsburgh neighborhoods of his youth, the film Boyz N the Hood, and the early writings of W. E. B. Du Bois, New York-based Kyle Abraham investigates the rich history of urban culture and the rise and fall of community in Pavement. Set to a mix of music ranging from Bach to Sam Cooke, the work blends bold imagery and subtlety into a tapestry of visual and emotional depth.
Post-performance Talk-Back with Kyle Abraham and moderator Five College Dance Professor Jodi Falk immediately following the concert.
